Sketch to Screen Costume Design Panel and Celebration

Presented by Swarovski, Dean Teri Schwartz and UCLA TFT’s David C. Copley Center for the Study of Costume Design, the 10th annual Sketch to Screen Costume Design Panel and Celebration will take place on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at UCLA TFT’s James Bridges Theater.

On the eve of the Academy Awards each year, Deborah Nadoolman Landis, Ph.D., Chair and Founding Director of the Copley Center, welcomes a stellar group of international costume designers to the UCLA TFT campus to discuss their craft. With Professor Landis moderating, the Sketch to Screen panelists engage in a thought-provoking panel discussion about the central role costume designers play in cinematic storytelling. Audience members are given an invaluable look into some of the most successful creative minds in Hollywood.

The event is possible through the generous support of Swarovski, whose history spans more than 80 sparkling years on the silver screen, working hand-in-hand with countless costume, jewelry and set designers on some of Hollywood’s most iconic productions.

The panelists for the 2019 edition of Sketch to Screen included Academy Award winner Ruth E. Carter (Black Panther) as well as Oscar nominees Alexandra Byrne (Mary Queen of Scots), Sandy Powell (Mary Poppins Returns and The Favourite) and Mary Zophres (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs). Also joining in the conversation were distinguished costume designers Erin Benach (A Star Is Born) and Mary E. Vogt (Crazy Rich Asians).
