Film Independent announced the guest speakers and program for the 11th Annual Film Independent Directors Close-Up series. The series takes place every Wednesday from February 8, 2012 – March 7, 2012 at The Landmark in West Los Angeles.

Guest speakers include Directors Jonathan Levine, (50/50), Mike Mills (Beginners), Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter), Writers Will Reiser (50/50), Phil Johnston (Cedar Rapids), Sound Designer Will Files (Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Tree of Life, Take Shelter) and Composer David Wingo (Take Shelter). Actor Harry Lennix (Man of Steel, Ray), writer/director Robin Swicord (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and HitFix Editor-in-Chief Gregory Ellwood will be moderators.

“The Film Independent Directors Close-Up provides a rare opportunity for cinephiles, and filmmakers alike, to hear candid stories from esteemed directors about the joys, trials and tribulations of making a film. This series really pulls back the curtain on the collaborative process in an intimate setting, and allows our audience to ask those burning questions they have about independent filmmaking,” said Director of Education Maria Bozzi.

Here is a quick snapshot of the panel subjects for this year’s Close Up:

February 8 – Sound Advice: Moving Beyond the Picture
February 15 – The Storytellers: Writers and Directors
