Actor and stage director Austin Pendleton will host a screening of the short Starring Austin Pendleton by filmmakers Gene Gallerano and David H.

The film includes interviews with Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, Olympia Dukakis, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, among others.

Following the screening, Austin Pendleton will participate in a Q&A.
