This year's keynote speaker is WP Trustee Lourdes Cortez, President and CEO of North Jersey Federal Credit Union.
Matt Bastos and Professor Chriss Williams will discuss the intersections between film and essay writing: how writing for film can reshape how an author approaches essay topics.
Matt Bastos is a senior at William Paterson University studying film. The first film that he wrote, produced, and directed, What Keeps Us Together, was released in 2016 and has won a Viewer’s Choice award at the WPU Film Festival as well as the annual Maltese Award. Bastos is also an experienced cinematographer, and he is currently working with director Erik Almquist on the upcoming film The Great Unknown, which is currently in the pre-production stage.
Chriss Williams is a professor of film at William Paterson University. Receiving his M.F.A. at New York University, he has worked with legendary director Spike Lee on the film Crooklyn. Williams wrote, directed, and edited the feature file Asbury Park, which won the Gordon Parks Award for Directing in 1997 and was selected for the 1998 Palm Springs Film Festival and the 1999 Atlanta Film Festival. Williams’ short film Bloods on the Moon won Time Warner/Warner Bros.’ Fellowship for Excellence in Filmmaking and the Dean’s Choice Award at the NYU Film Festival in 1993.
