“Inspirational! Why waste 4 years at a film school? I took Dov’s class and launched my career.” – Quentin Tarantino
For decades, Dov Simens has taught the secrets of the film business to aspiring filmmakers through his “2-Day Film School,” and the results speak for themselves. Dov’s students include Quentin Tarantino, Guy Ritchie, Will Smith and Baz Luhrmann, who have gone on to write, direct and produce critically and commercially successful films. His 75,000 students have gone on to gross over $14 billion at the box office, combined.
MovieMaker Magazine is proud to present Mr. Simens in a one-time-only engagement at the historic Clinton Street Theater in Portland.

Dov insists that filmmaking is a business: “Well, I know it’s an art, but you can’t teach talent,” he explains. “I can teach business; I can teach you how to make and sell a film.”
