Sony Pictures Classics: 20 Years In The Business 
Sony Pictures Classics founders Michael Barker and Tom Bernard boast a roster of directors that reads like a pantheon of world talent: Woody Allen, Pedro Almodóvar, Susanne Bier, David Cronenberg, Guillermo del Toro, Norman Jewison, Ang Lee, Errol Morris, Gus Van Sant, Mike Leigh, Zhang Yimou, and the list goes on.
To celebrate the company’s twentieth anniversary, Mavericks presents a special conversation with Barker and Bernard. They have an unlimited supply of stories from behind the scenes at the Toronto International Film Festival, Cannes and the Oscars. For cinema lovers, this is a unique opportunity to hear how some of the most lauded films of our time were shepherded to success.
The discussion will be moderated by Jonathan Demme, who worked with the duo most recently on Rachel Getting Married.
