America’s Future: Prominent Hollywood Producers at CPAC 2013 to Address Need for More Traditionalist Themes in Entertainment

March 4, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced prominent filmmakers who will participate on a panel entitled “Getting Hollywood Right” at CPAC 2013, the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference. America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists will be held Thursday, March 14 – Saturday, March 16, 2013. The Hollywood panel will take place on Friday, March 15th at 3:00 pm.

“Hollywood has had a long-standing reputation of catering to liberal political ideology instead of making movies that appeal to all Americans,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “But there are some very accomplished players who have fought against that narrative — and have the Oscars and Emmys to prove that the mainstream conservative audience is ignored at Hollywood’s own peril. Their stories from the front lines in Hollywood will inspire you.”

Featured speakers who will discuss the merits of making sure that traditionalist themes are featured in Hollywood films include:

Gerald Molen, Producer, Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park, Hook, Minority Report, and 2016: Obama’s America.

Pat Caddell, Producer, Writer and Consultant, The West Wing and Air Force One

Howie Klausner, Screenwriter, Space Cowboys, Reagan, The Last Ride

John Sullivan, Director and Writer, 2016: Obama’s America

Moderator:  Mark Joseph, Producer, Reagan: The Movie, Max Rose

CPAC will be held March 14-16, 2013 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, offering three days of blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities – all celebrating the shared principles of smaller government, a strong national defense and traditional American values. For additional information, visit our website at conservative.org/cpac/, on Facebook at facebook.com/CPACNews, or on Twitter at @CPACnews and #CPAC2013.
