The GMU-TV-based, live-to-taped “Studio A” show with host Rick Davis, associate provost for undergraduate education, has announced its fall 2011 guests.

Now in its fourth year, “Studio A” is part of the Film and Video Studies (FAVS) Program. Students are part of the preproduction, serve as the live studio audience and meet each guest at a reception for more face-to-face time.

The fall lineup is:

Oct. 28 — Dennis Boni, a videographer who has shot environmental films for PBS and Discovery with Matt Damon and Ted Koppel, as well as other celebrities.

Nov. 11 — Diane Raver, a well-known film producer and festival director. She recently won the 2011 Alice Guy Blache Award.

Dec. 2 — Joseph Hall, producer, director and writer whose films include “Here, There and Everywhere”; “The Toast”; and “The Misadventures of Matilda Mench.” He has received many CINE Awards, as well as Golden Eagle, and Television, Internet and Video Association of DC PEER Awards.

Dec. 9 — Catherine Wyler, daughter of William Wyler, the director of the films “Ben Hur,” “Funny Girl” and “Roman Holiday.” Catherine Wyler ran the High Falls Film Festival in Rochester, N.Y., for many years.  Now she is a judge at many film festivals and is on the board of Women in Film and Video.
