In December 2021, we had the pleasure of welcoming Award-Winning Writer/Director Andy Wolk as part of The 20/20 Series, created by NYFA’s Creative Director of Filmmaking and Cinematography, Liz Hinlein.

Andy Wolk’s film writing and directing career began with the much-lauded HBO movie Criminal Justice that made Time Magazine’s “Ten Best” List. Starring Forest Whitaker, Anthony LaPaglia, and Rosie Perez. Criminal Justice received the Silver Prize at FIPA in Cannes and was named Best Cable Movie of the year. Whitaker, LaPaglia, and Perez were all nominated for acting awards and Mr. Wolk was nominated for the Writer’s Guide Award. He received the Writer’s Guide Award for writing Natica Jackson on PBS which starred Michelle Pfeiffer.

The 20/20 Series is a pop-up event that takes us into the homes, hubs, and workspaces of an array of dynamic creative visionaries to allow for relaxed, engaging conversations on craft, creation, and artistic vision. Each conversation with a creative visionary features 20 minutes of discussion with a moderator and a 20 minute Q&A from YOU, the audience.
