In Conversation with Oliver Stone


  • Wednesday, March 9, 2016 - 18:00 to 19:45

The University of Edinburgh is delighted to welcome three-time Academy Award-winner Oliver Stone to Scotland. The celebrated writer, producer and director will discuss his illustrious career with University of Edinburgh experts at an event in Edinburgh's Filmhouse on Wednesday 9th March.

Oliver Stone has written and directed more than 20 full-length feature films, among them Platoon (1986), Born on the Fourth of July (1989), JFK (1991), Nixon (1995) and the documentaries W (2008) and Untold History of the United States (2012).

During his stay in Edinburgh, the filmmaker will take part in a number of workshops with students at Edinburgh College of Art and the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures.

At the evening event, Edinburgh College of Art academic Dr Jonny Murray will join Oliver Stone on stage to gain insight on his artistic and political motivations, and thoughts on how the film industry has changed throughout his thirty-year career. He will also talk about his current project, the highly anticipated political thriller, Snowden, ahead of its nation-wide release later this year. The film is directed by Oliver Stone, and co-written with Kieran Fitzgerald.

The event has been organised by the University of Edinburgh in partnership with Edinburgh Filmhouse.

Tickets for In Conversation with Oliver Stone cost £10 (£8 concessions) and can be purchased via the Filmhouse website - www.filmhousecinema.com
