VIFF’s Film and Television Forum in partnership with the Directors Guild of Canada is proud to host a special q&a presentation with Emmy award-winning executive producer and director, Michelle MacLaren. From the critically acclaimed Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones to The Walking Dead and Hell on Wheels, MacLaren has mastered the art of turning heart-stopping action scenes into unforgettable character studies. No mean feat!

MacLaren has directed some of Breaking Bad’s best and most pivotal episodes, beginning with Season 2’s “4 Days Out” and ending with Season 5’s jaw-dropping shoot-out “To’hajiilee”. Hitfix’s Alan Sepinwall wrote, “MacLaren shoots every image of Walter White in the desert like it’s the conclusion of an epic feature film, Walter of Arabia.”

Join us for what is sure to be a fascinating and fun session with Michelle as she discusses and dissects some of her favourite scenes from Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones. Whether you’re a seasoned director, producer, aspiring filmmaker or a fan, come prepared with lots of questions!
