Please join us for a free lecture by actor, screenwriter, playwright, and director Fabrizio Filippo on Tuesday, March 6 at 7 pm, in the School of Image Arts, Ryerson University.

Most recently Filippo wrote and directed the critically acclaimed and award-winning digital series for CBC called Save Me. He is currently in development with two projects for Canadian Prodcos and before that developed a new half-hour for 20th Century Fox. As a playwright, he was most recently nominated for a Dora Award for his play The Summoned and is currently working on a new play for the Tarragon theatre entitled American Television. Before that he was on staff as writer and co-produced NBC’s comedy Working The Engels, co-wrote the true crime indie Perfect Sisters starring Abigail Breslin and Mira Sorvino and co-wrote the Lifetime movie Too Late To Say Good-Bye starring Rob Lowe and Lauren Holly. He also co-created and directed the half-hour Showcase hit comedy Billable Hours in which he starred. As an actor he has been nominated for a Canadian Screen Award and you might also know him from such projects as Lives Of The Saints starring opposite Sophia Loren, indie hit waydowntown, or as Ethan Gold in the groundbreaking Showtime series Queer As Folk. He is often recognized for a stint on the hit Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

The School of Image Arts’ visiting artist program is designed to enhance the school’s programs by bringing artists to share their expertise with students through in-class critiques, seminars, and public lectures open to the Ryerson community and the general public. The School of Image Arts’ mandate is to deliver comprehensive undergraduate and graduate education in the linked disciplines of film, photography, and integrated digital. The curriculum embraces a balance of theory and practice, fine art and commercial production, while nourishing critical thinking and freedom of expression. Each program recognizes the vital contribution of art, design, and visual and critical studies in their respective fields of specialization.
