For the past four years, UCLA and USC have co-hosted the public symposium Transmedia, Hollywood, which explores the role of transmedia franchises in today’s entertainment industries. Led by Denise Mann (UCLA) and Henry Jenkins (USC), Transmedia, Hollywood has turned the spotlight on media creators, producers and executives, engaging them in critical dialogue with top researchers across a wide spectrum of film, media and cultural studies to provide an interdisciplinary summit.

This year’s Transmedia, Hollywood conference is taking on a new challenge—tracking the major changes taking place in the television industry. It is now called Transforming Hollywood. Join 5D Institute founder Henry Jenkins, Denise Mann and their guests on April 4th for this one-day symposium, to examine the landmark transformations that are impacting creators, distributors and audiences in extraordinary ways.
