The El Capitan transforms into a snowy wonderland, providing plenty of thrills and chills this holiday season with its exclusive prerelease of the animated comedy-adventure, Disney's Frozen 3D, five days before it hits theaters. There's tons of cool stuff before the movie starts, too, including Images in Ice, a dynamic new ice-carving performance, and a live visit from Frozen stars Anna and Elsa. The exciting new 3D movie, from Walt Disney Animation Studios (Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph), finds fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven on a quest to track down her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), who's trapped the kingdom in an eternal winter. But Anna and Kristoff have to make it through Mount Everest-like ice and snow, and meeting mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf if they want to save the kingdom. The soundtrack boasts music from Tony-winner Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (In Transit). Learn More

Learn from the masters! The Writers Guild Foundation is proud to present this special spring interview series, which will take place at the Writers Guild Theater. The series is part of the Foundation's ongoing Writers on Writing program. A light reception in the theater lobby will follow the session with appetizer form Chipotle Grill and beverages, including Pravda Vodka cocktails.
Mandel and Ganz met in a Hollywood comedy club while the former was working as a joke writer and the latter was working as a staff writer on "The Odd Couple." Both transplanted writers from New York who idolized Billy Wilder, they quickly became good friends. The day after his wedding, Mandel finally accepted Ganz's offer to team up to write TV sitcoms, with their first collaboration being the hit series "Laverne and Shirley." The relationships that they developed in TV would serve them well in features; their TV colleagues included such future film heavyweights as Ron Howard, Garry Marshall, and Penny Marshall (who directed their hit, A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, 1992). Though some critics characterize Ganz/Mandel projects as sitcoms writ large, the pair offers strengths that are rare in modern comedy writing: strong story structure and rich characterizations enhanced by Mandel's flair for killer punchlines.

- collect and preserve the best and most representative film and television writing from each year for present and future generations to study
-provide primary and continuing educational opportunities for professional writers and students
