Colin Farrell Kicks Off Dodge Master Class Series; ‘Tár’ Director Todd Field to Visit on Wednesday

Academy Award-nominated actor Colin Farrell recently launched the spring season of master classes hosted by Chapman University’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts. On Wednesday, Feb. 15, Dodge’s signature series continues as Todd Field visits to discuss his work after a screening of his Oscar-nominated film “Tár.”

Field’s acclaimed drama starring Cate Blanchett will screen at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Folino Theater at Marion Knott Studios. Afterward, Field will participate in a Q&A moderated by Scott Feinberg, Chapman trustee professor and executive editor of awards at The Hollywood Reporter.

Like all upcoming in-person master classes in the Dodge series, the screening and appearance by Field are open to Chapman students, faculty, staff and alumni on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open a half-hour before listed start times, with each event expected to reach seating capacity.
