BUFFALO, N.Y. — Forty-two University at Buffalo students and recent graduates with dreams of making it in the entertainment industry will be in Los Angeles June 27-28 to attend the University at Buffalo’s first “Coast to Coast Entertainment and Media Symposium” (UBC2C Hollywood) in the hopes of getting a foot in the door.

The students will attend workshops in acting, writing, directing, vocal performance, stand-up comedy, magazine journalism, independent film production and marketing, as well as on new trends in media coverage of the entertainment industry. A special Sunday mentoring session will give the students one-on-one access to industry veterans and Hollywood VIPs.

A generous donation by an anonymous UB alumnus is funding travel and attendance at the workshops for many of the UB students.
