Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker Series
The Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker Series was established to build bridges between the IU campus and Bloomington communities and a global network of film professionals whose talents and creativity have made indelible imprints across film and cultural landscapes. Since its inception, the Jorgensen Series has hosted over 300 renowned guests. None of this would be possible without the generous support of the Ove W Jorgensen Foundation and Jane and Jay Jorgensen. Their continued commitment to IU Cinema helps form the bedrock of IU Cinema’s work.
Since opening, guest filmmakers have included Edward James Olmos, Meryl Streep, Roger Corman, Abbas Kiarostami, Nelson Pereira dos Santos, Christine Vachon, Nicolas Winding Refn, Ava DuVernay, Kevin Kline, Ari Folman, Werner Herzog, Claire Denis, Joe Swanberg, Todd Solondz, Amy Seimetz, Walter Salles, John Sayles, Albert Maysles, Jill Godmilow, Stanley Nelson, Paul Schrader, Peter Bogdanovich, Steve James, Natalia Almada, Charles Burnett, Glenn Close, Peter Weir, Guy Maddin, Kenneth Anger, and Pedro Costa, to name a few.
