About Izzy Gets the Fuck Across Town

Riot grrrl rocker and shameless hot mess Izzy wakes up hungover AF to find out that her ex-boyfriend is celebrating his engagement to her ex-best friend tonight at a bougie party across town. Enraged and desperate, Izzy embarks on a frenetic quest across Los Angeles to break up the party in order to fulfill what she believes to be her destiny ... before it’s too late.

Written and directed by Christian Papierniak, the riotous indie comedy Izzy Gets the Fuck Across Town had its world premiere at the 2017 Los Angeles Film Festival. The film has continued to play to critical acclaim and sold out festival audiences across the country, winning Best Narrative Feature and Best Narrative Performance (Mackenzie Davis) at the Tacoma Film Festival, and Best Performance (Mackenzie Davis) at the Napa Valley Film Festival. A delightfully chaotic look at Los Angeles and the struggles of adulting, Izzy is propelled by dogged urgency, a blistering soundtrack, firebrand edge and the dynamic performances of a sensational cast.

About the guest

Christian Papierniak (Writer, Director, Producer, USC Alum)
For television, Christian Papierniak has created and co-executive produced pilots for ABC, NBC, Fox, Sony, ABC Family and Lifetime. In film, he has worked as a writer for Universal, Paramount, Warner Bros/New Line, Lion's Gate, Disney and Fox Searchlight. While still in Grad School at AFI he was named one of Filmmaker Magazine's “Top 25 New Faces of Independent Film”.

In 2014, Christian was tapped to direct one of the biggest video game franchises of all time,
NBA2K, as it made the leap to the next generation of game consoles. Its immersive,
narrative storyline was the first of its kind for a sports game. The game was showered with overwhelmingly positive reviews and was named Game of the Year by VGX. He returned for NBA2K15, again to overwhelmingly positive reviews and outsold Madden Football for the first time in the history of the franchise. He returned this year for NBA2K18.

Izzy Gets the Fuck Across Town, starring Mackenzie Davis, Carrie Coon, Alia Shawkat, Keith Stanfield, Haley Joel Osment, Brandon T. Jackson, Rob Huebel, Kyle Kinane, Luka Jones, Dolly Wells, and Annie Potts, is his first feature film.

About the Alumni Screening Series

The USC School of Cinematic Arts invites you to an exciting free screening series featuring a dynamic selection of new feature films by alumni and faculty throughout 2018. All screenings and events are free of charge and open to the public unless otherwise noted, although we do ask for an electronic reservation for each screening, which can be made by clicking the link to "Make Reservations" at the top of each event page.

Check-in & Reservations

This screening is free of charge and open to the public. Please bring either a printed or digital confirmation of your reservation, which will automatically be sent to your e-mail account upon successfully making an RSVP through this website. 

All SCA screenings are OVERBOOKED to ensure seating capacity in the theater, therefore seating is not guaranteed based on RSVPs. Doors will open at 6:30 P.M. and the RSVP list will be checked in on a first-come, first-served basis until the theater is full. Once the theater has reached capacity, we will no longer be able to admit guests, regardless of RSVP status.

Limited handicap seating is available. For guests with disabilities who require special accommodations, please contact Matthew Meier at mmeier@cinema.usc.edu with the subject line: "Accommodations Request – IZZY."


The USC School of Cinematic Arts is located at 900 W. 34th St., Los Angeles, CA 90007. Parking passes may be purchased for $12.00 at the McClintock Avenue Entrance (formerly Gate #5) or Royal Street Entrance (formerly Gate #4) on W. Jefferson Blvd. We recommend parking in the Royal Street Parking Structure (formerly PSD), at the far end of 34th Street. Metered street parking is also available along Jefferson Blvd, with limited non-metered spaces also available north of Jefferson and throughout the surrounding neighborhood. Especially if you plan to utilize street parking, we HIGHLY recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before the screening, as parking can be difficult to find and it may take time to walk to the theater from your parking space.
