HAROLD LLOYD MASTER SEMINARS

Established in 1969, the Harold Lloyd Master Seminar series includes participants who represent an exceptional cross-section of cinema's great talents. Transcripts, and often tapes, of all of these seminars are available to Fellows as reference materials in AFI's Louis B. Mayer Library.

The Harold Lloyd Master Seminar series — named after silent film legend Harold Lloyd, who gave the first seminar in 1969 — brings Fellows together with artists to share their work and experiences in an informal and accessible setting. These artists impart not only practical advice on making movies, but speak about their influences, early experiences and dedication to their craft. Providing an exchange of ideas between established and emerging filmmakers, these seminars are among AFI Conservatory's most popular programs.
