Film: "Get On Up"
Tate Taylor is one of the hottest emerging talents in Hollywood right now.
He is the epitome of the total 'Hollywood' package. Movie star good looks, an acclaimed writer, director and producer with a breakout Oscar nominated hit film under his belt, a new release that is already generating award buzz and a stream of film and television projects in the works. However, he's as far from a Hollywood cliché as you're likely to find.
Registrations are now open for the Fall KCET Cinema Series - Aero Theatre, Santa Monica.
The Fall KCET Cinema Series begins on August 19 and runs through October 14 at the historic Aero Theatre in Santa Monica and is sponsored by The Johnny Mercer Foundation. Eight evenings of independent and Hollywood films shown prior to their theatrical release in Los Angeles theatres.
