From Miami to Moonlight: A Conversation with Andrew Hevia

November 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

Join the Gabelli School of Business for a conversation with Andrew Hevia, Fordham alumnus and co-producer of the Oscar-winning film Moonlight.

Before the three-time Academy Award-winning film Moonlight stunned the world at this year’s Oscars, Director Barry Jenkins had only one other feature to his name: a 13,000-dollar film called Medicine for Melancholy. How did he get from a little-seen (but beloved) movie made in San Francisco to a film widely hailed as a “groundbreaking masterpiece” filmed in Liberty City, the neighborhood where Jenkins grew up? The answer involves a scrappy, DIY Miami-set film festival called Borscht and a strange, meditative short film called Chlorophyl produced by Andrew Hevia. See clips from the film and learn how it led to one of the most acclaimed feature films in decades.

Andrew Hevia is a Cuban American filmmaker from Miami, Florida. He co-produced the three-time Academy Award-winning film Moonlight and produced the upcoming Cenizas from director Juan Sebastian Jacome. He is a co-founder of the Borscht Film Festival, which was called “the weirdest film festival on the planet” by Indiewire. He is a graduate of New World School of the Arts and the film school at Florida State University. He holds a master’s degree in media entrepreneurship from the Gabelli School of Business at Fordham University and was a Fulbright Research Fellow in Hong Kong. His latest project, Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window, is an official selection of the IFP Filmmaker Labs.
