David O. Russell in conversation with Alexander Payne
Monday, November 10, 2014
The Holland Performing Arts Center
It is fitting that a celebration in support of Film Streams’ mission should bring together two of the greatest contemporary directors. Russell and Payne’s films have amassed dozens of Academy Award Nominations. Russell was nominated for Academy Awards for two screenplays, Payne for three (with two wins). Both have three best-director nominations. And, both have made three best-picture nominees. More than 1,300 guests attended, raising more than $330,000.
