Ava DuVernay, Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo & Common's Selma Q&A at AFI Fest presented by Audi

Film Flam Flummox

Paramount's original plan for their special preview event for Selma at this year's AFI Fest presented by Audi was to screen the not-yet-finished Martin Luther King historical drama's first 30 minutes, followed by a discussion with director Ava DuVernay, star David Oyelowo, and co-star/producer Oprah Winfrey. But after a marathon final lap of post-production, Tuesday, November 11 ended up marking the unofficial world premiere of the film, with DuVernay unveiling the complete but still-not-entirely-done film to a wildly enthusiastic reception from a capacity crowd. This energy made for an all the more lively post-screening discussion with DuVernay, Oyelowo, Winfrey, co-star Common, and producers Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, moderated by Alfre Woodard--which one can watch in its entirety below.

Selma opens in limited release on Thursday, December 25, and expands to cinemas nationwide on Friday, January 9 from Paramount Pictures.
