With clips on the screen and screenplay in hand, Mark L. Smith will take us on a journey of adapting The Revenant; working with Alejandro González Iñárritu; and how he tackled character, description, and structure in this visually epic, Academy Award® winning film.

Those who enrolled in the advance sign-up for this session are required to show up 15 minutes early and will be admitted first. The panel will then open to remaining Badge holders.
