Yale College & Yale School of Management Present: The Yale LA Salon Series featuring Cynthia Kanner

The upcoming 2015 Yale LA Salon Series is a joint Yale Undergraduate and Yale School of Management quarterly speaker series. Our Yale LA Salon Series will be an exclusive and intimate speaker series limited to 35 alums. Join us for an intimate discussion with Cynthia Kanner, VP of Post Production at HBO.  

Event format: 30 minutes mingling, 60 minute talk and discussion with Cynthia Kanner, 30 minutes networking and discussion post-talk.

More about the speaker: Cynthia Kanner is vice president, Post Production, for Home Box Office, responsible for overseeing post production on all HBO Films and miniseries. In addition, following the merging of the HBO Films production department and the Original Programming production department in 2010, Kanner began working on original series as well. Among the films, miniseries, and series on which she has worked are the critically acclaimed and award-winning John Adams, Game Change, American Splendor, Maria Full of Grace, Angels in America, Olive Kitteridge, Silicon Valley, and Girls. She was named to this position in December 2000.

Kanner joined HBO as director, Post Production for HBO Pictures in October 1994.  During this time, she supervised post production on such films as Gotti, Gia, The Gathering Storm and The Laramie Project.

Prior to HBO, Kanner freelanced in both production and post production and was production executive at Kings Road Entertainment, where her responsibilities ranged from overseeing production of five features, to supervising the budget and helping develop ad campaigns.  She also worked at Coopers & Lybrand during and after graduate school, where she worked on audits and mergers and acquisitions.

Kanner is active in several programs which involve HBO and local communities. In 2005 she and her colleagues received the first Heiskell Team Award which honored their public service for the creation of a program called “Digital Dove.”  The program received funding from HBO and Time Warner to teach homeless youth life skills through filmmaking.  In addition, Kanner is VP of the board of directors for the Architecture and Design Museum (A+D), where she is actively involved in the Stephen Kanner Education Center.

Kanner holds a BA in History from Yale University and an MBA from New York University.
