Writer-director-producer Jerry Zucker hosted an evening exploring what could be in the future for motion pictures. The program examined topics ranging from artificial intelligence to performance capture, 3D and non-traditional theatrical venues.

Zucker’s interest in the future of cinema is evident in his role as a co-founder of the Science & Entertainment Exchange, a program of the National Academy of Sciences that provides entertainment industry professionals with access to scientists and engineers. His feature film credits include “Airplane!” (1980), “Ghost” (1990), “My Best Friend’s Wedding” (1997), “Rat Race” (2001) and “Fair Game” (2010).
