LOS ANGELES, CA – The Academy will present its 4th annual Careers in Film Summit on Saturday, October 6, at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

The summit will feature such panelists as director Peyton Reed (“Ant-Man and the Wasp”), producer Nina Jacobson (“Crazy Rich Asians”), Oscar-nominated cinematographer Rachel Morrison (“Mudbound”), Oscar-nominated composer Mark Isham (“A River Runs through It”) and singer-songwriter Goapele (“#WhereIsBeauty”). The summit’s five panel discussions also will be live-streamed on Oscars.org.

The panelists, whose areas of expertise include directing, composing, sound, editing, cinematography, costume design, and animation, will offer students firsthand knowledge of working in the industry and identify essential skills for their respective careers.
