Corman IconThe Art and Legacy of Roger Corman

Still Image of Roger Corman
Roger Corman’s 60-year career has built a legacy that is unparalleled. Throughout the 50s and 60s he set the pace to become Hollywood’s most prolific filmmaker. He was the youngest director ever to be honored with retrospectives at the Cinematheque Francaise in Paris, the BFI, and MoMA. Along with directing more than 50 feature films, producing 400 films, running 2 production and distribution companies, and earning a Lifetime Achievement Oscar, he helped launch the careers of many of the New Hollywood filmmakers of the 1970s. Among many others, Martin Scorsese, Frances Ford Coppola, Peter Bogdanovich, Joe Dante, James Cameron, Ron Howard, and Jonathan Demme all ascended from the ‘Corman School’ of filmmaking. Special thanks to David Church and Craig Simpson. Tickets for all screenings are $3 unless otherwise noted. Roger Corman is scheduled to be present at noted events in April.

Partial support for Roger Corman's visit to Indiana came from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
