Jordan believes we live in a "show-me" culture. it's not enough to tell someone your idea, anyone has the tools to manifest their ideas into existence. It's an exciting time but most people never take the first leap of faith necessary to follow their creative dreams because they're afraid to be vulnerable and afraid to fail. Great art cannot exist without vulnerability and failure. He will discuss this concept and specifically how it relates to a country like Viet Nam and how to continue to grow the arts by encouraging people taking that first frightening leap is the only way to create disruptive content.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts is an American film and television director hailing from the ashes of Detroit.

His most recent feature, KONG: SKULL ISLAND opened in March 2017 to critical acclaim and commercial success, making over 500 million dollars at the world wide box office. Starring Tom Hiddleston, Academy-Award winner Brie Larson, John C. Reilly and John Goodman, the film is set in the 1970’s and is a unique reimagining of the King Kong mythos based on Vogt-Roberts’ original pitch to the studio. Previous he made the film THE KINGS OF SUMMER which premiered at the Sundance film festival in 2013. He directed the pilot for the FXX critically acclaimed show YOU'RE THE WORST. He spends half his time working in Vietnam on making arts education more accessible.
