Special Presentation by Michael Arndt (in attendance)

Some movies leave you indifferent, some leave you satisfied, and some leave you feeling euphoric—walking on air and seeing the world through new eyes. What, then, is the difference between a bad ending, a good ending, and an insanely great ending? Join screenwriter Michael Arndt for a work-in-progress screening of the new video version of his lecture: Endings: The Good, The Bad, and the Insanely Great. In this cinematic version of an AFF favorite, Arndt explores how great endings work with a close analysis of the climaxes of Star Wars, The Graduate, and his own screenplay, Little Miss Sunshine. Stick around after the screening for an extended Q&A with Arndt.
