Oscar®-winning actress Regina King has a decades-spanning career in Hollywood and shows no sign of slowing down. In addition to the Academy Award®, King won a Golden Globe, a Film Independent Spirit Award, and the prestigious National Board of Review Award for her supporting role as Sharon Rivers in Barry Jenkins’ adaptation of James Baldwin’s If Beale Street Could Talk (MVFF41). King has also won four Emmy® Awards in recent years: one for the Netflix racial crime drama Seven Seconds, two for the ABC anthology series American Crime, and most recently for HBO’s Watchmen. Over the past few years, King has also stepped behind the camera directing episodes of critically acclaimed television series, including NBC’s This Is Us, ABC’s Scandal, TNT’s Animal Kingdom, ABC’s The Good Doctor, and HBO's Insecure, among others. With her feature directorial debut One Night in Miami, King has already made history, becoming the very first African American woman director to have a feature selected at the Venice Film Festival. Bringing Kemp Powers’ hit play about an imagined meeting between four Black American icons—Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, Sam Cooke, and Jim Brown—in 1964 to the silver screen, King displays a formidable eye for detail and perspective as well as a natural, astounding ability eliciting sensational performances from her quartet of leading men. Join us as we spotlight Regina King’s transition from multi-award-winning actor to trailblazing film director and discuss MVFF43’s Centerpiece title, One Night in Miami.
