Contribute, Contribute, Contribute: Quentin Tarantino Gives Rousing Speech to Graduates at the American Film Institute

By

Distinguished auteur Quentin Tarantino received an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from the American Film Institute earlier this week, where he imparted some inspiring words of wisdom to AFI's class of 2016 upon receiving his degree at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood. His key advice for the whippersnappers? "Contribute to the conversation of art. Contribute to the conversation on film, on television, on multimedia. Contribute to the conversation on race," he said. "Contribute to the conversation on culture. Contribute to the conversation on America. Contribute to the conversation on the world. Contribute to the conversation on politics. ... I just want to say, welcome. We need you." Nice gown and hood, too, QT.
