Dynamic Characters: Portraying Veterans in Film & TV

Mar 11, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

My Dead Friend Zoe is screening as part of the SXSW Film & TV Festival: https://schedule.sxsw.com/2024/films/2196578

Writers often have difficulty writing for characters with military backgrounds. Yet, adding military veteran characters to the script of a film or television project can result in dynamic characters, and it can be easier than people think. Join the writer/director of My Dead Friend Zoe (SXSW World Premiere), alongside the film's lead, Sonequa Martin-Green, and two combat veterans to discuss the portrayals of veterans in film and television.
