2020 History Conference

This two-day virtual conference will gather actors, directors, producers alongside government, military, and academic leaders to discuss the evolution of the U.S. military’s portrayal in film. Speakers will discuss the history of the military in the movies from WWI to the present, the key partnership between Hollywood and the DOD, the importance of maintaining accuracy in popular media without derailing the entertainment value and mass appeal, the role of amateur filmmakers in sharing their stories, and the implications and the influence all these mediums have on the public’s perception of the military.


This event is made possible with support from the William M. Wood Foundation.
