The Centre for Media, Culture and Creative Practices and the Department of
Media and Cultural Studies presents film producer Michiyo Yoshizaki and Ado
Yoshizaki Cassuto, who will be visiting Birkbeck to discuss the art and
business of independent film.

Making Films That Matter: the work of independent film production
*“The producer builds the ship and invites everybody to come on a journey in
it somewhere" (Ado Yoshizaki Cassuto)
Abstract: Many outside or even in the film industry struggle to define what
exactly a producer does. An independent film producer Michiyo Yoshizaki, CEO
of NDF International, has come to know exactly what the role involves after
having overseen a long list of boundary breaking, international and
critically acclaimed films from idea to release. NDF International is well
known throughout the film industry for its emphasis on quality independent
films, chosen on the basis of script, cast, and directors, and commercial
potential. To date she has produced, co-produced, and executive produced
such acclaimed films as ‘Howard’s End’, ‘Crying Game’, ‘Naked Lunch’,
‘Basquiat’, ‘Kama Sutra: a tale of love’, ‘Chinese Box’, ‘Titus’, ‘Wilde’
and ‘Guantanamero’ which have collectively received more than 17
Oscar nomination, many Golden Globe awards and countless other film festival
awards. Lately, in partnership with Ado Yoshizaki Cassuto, she currently
manages a new slate of projects in development, with the aim of continuing
the NDF tradition of producing quality films.

This lecture is free and open to the public but the booking is essential.
