There, he will have the opportunity to be present for
several film premieres and one-on-ones with the
filmmakers and actors. Some of these famous faces
may include Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, David
Lynch, and Daniel Day-Lewis.
“The opportunity sounded exciting from the start,
because I can network while immersing myself in an
academic and creative environment,” said Keelan. As
part of the application process, Keelan worked closely
with his faculty advisor, Dr. Debra White-Stanley,
who oversaw his progress while he wrote a film
analysis on Richard Linklater’s Boyhood (2014),
which helped him get selected for the symposium.
“Dr. White-Stanley’s influence and guidance made it
possible for me to attend this symposium, and it has
brought me to other opportunities to prepare for this
experience.” During his sophomore year, Keelan was
also accepted to attend the Sundance Film Festival.
