Actor Michael Murphy to talk in MNFF’s online event
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival is welcoming back one of its favorite honorees, the distinguished film actor Michael Murphy, for the next edition of the Craven Conversations on Wednesday, June 24, at 7 p.m. EDT on Zoom.
In a career spanning more than 50 years, Mr. Murphy has worked with an array of heralded filmmakers, including Robert Altman, Martin Scorsese, Tim Burton and Paul Thomas Anderson.
Among his dozens of film credits, highlights include “The Arrangement,” “M*A*S*H,” “McCabe & Mrs. Miller,” “Nashville,” “The Front,” “An Unmarried Woman,” “Manhattan,” “The Year of Living Dangerously,” “Salvador,” “Batman Returns” and “Away from Her.”
The breadth and depth of the roles Mr. Murphy has played and the innumerable stories he has accumulated will make for a most insightful and entertaining conversation that promises to be memorable.
Murphy is perhaps best known for his long collaboration with renowned director Robert Altman, having been cast in seven of Altman’s movies between 1968 and 1996, and in two cable-TV mini-series for him: “Tanner ’88” and “Tanner on Tanner.”
Attendance is limited for the Michael Murphy conversation and all attendees must have a Zoom account to register. Those interested may contact Phoebe Lewis at [email protected] for registration information.
