No, this isn’t another post about Austin’s Cine Las Americas festival… but Cuban is coming. Mark Cuban, that is. As part of John Pierson’s (quite frankly) kick-ass semester of “Master Class” guests at UT, billionaire basketball/film mogul Mark Cuban will sit down for his very own session on Monday, April 17, at 6:00 PM at the University of Texas.
Here is the official word:
FREE TICKETS to the event will be distributed THIS FRIDAY April 14, NOON to 3pm in the PLAZA outside the Communications Building, CMA (corner of Dean Keeton and Guadalupe).
ALL ARE WELCOME! ONLY TICKETHOLDERS WILL BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND THE EVENT.
As owner of the Dallas Mavericks, founder of HDNet, Chairman and co-owner of Magnolia Pictures, Landmark Theaters, and 2929 Entertainment, Mark Cuban epitomizes the pinnacle of integrated success. His influence spans sports, technology and popular entertainment. Some of the many films on which Cuban has acted as Executive Producer include the Academy Award winning, Good Night, and Good Luck, Steven Soderbergh’s innovation of modern film distribution, Bubble, and the upcoming Akeelah and the Bee starring Laurence Fishburne. Entrepreneur, technology daredevil, entertainment visionary, and sports rebel, Mark Cuban’s achievements are barely measurable. Join John Pierson as he talks with this already legendary Texan.
Cuban is just the latest in an impressive list of speakers that Pierson has hosted over the last few months. Previous “Master Class” guests have included Mike Judge, Richard Linklater, Steve James, Kevin Smith, and others. Upcoming, after Cuban, will be such diverse guests as Sundance festival director Geoffrey Gilmore and action star Chuck Norris. There’s also a TBA guest that should be announced soon.
