Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company, will discuss his career, the entertainment industry and the future of show business only days after the Academy Awards on March 2.

A number of this year’s TWC releases are likely to be in the awards race, including Lee Daniel’s The Butler, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Philomena, August: Osage County and Fruitvale Station.
Ziffren is a prominent media and entertainment attorney. He also is an adjunct professor at UCLA Law School.
“I look forward to gathering with some of the greatest minds in the industry at this event – this is a constantly evolving business,” said Weinstein, “and we will always have things to learn from one another."

Now in its 38th year, t two-day program held on the UCLA campus in Westwood includes panels with speakers from TV networks, studios, cable TV, lawyers and others.
