David Ruck speaking at a screening of I want to be an Astronaut

I am frequently asked to give presentations to schools, lecture halls, public venues, or present one of my films.  I love these events and look forward to engaging an audience.


While my current position requires significant travel - sometimes with short notice - I try to accomodate all of these requests as best I can.  I am happy to work with you to arrange a screening of one of my films and to assist in putting together an panel or event to surround a screening.  These types of engagements have included astronauts, scientists, academics, policy makers and other professionals.  I am also asked to appear in college classrooms to discuss my experiences with budding documentary filmmakers or media students.


I look forward to speaking with you about what I can help bring to your school or event.  I look forward to hearing from you.
