Curated and Hosted by Randy Haberkamp in association with
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences- 
Best known for his iconic image of the rocket ship plunging into the moon’s eye, Georges Méliès
was a prolific filmmaker whose turn of the century shorts were innovative in technical 
achievement, special effects and stop-motion tricks. His films often involved surreal fantastical 
journeys that are considered among the most important work in cinematic science fiction. Join 
us for a tribute to the man and his legacy, as well as a deeper dive into the dawn of motion 
pictures.
