Paul Giamatti

Every two years, Film Streams brings a high-profile actor to Omaha for a fundraising event called Feature. Orchestrated by award-winning director and Film Streams board member Alexander Payne, this year we welcomed Paul Giamatti to the city. A very special evening at the Holland Performing Arts Center and the largest fundraising event to date for this cinema nonprofit.

Way back I remember seeing American Splendor at an arthouse theater in Lincoln. Such a great film. Made better by the magnificently skilled Paul Giamatti. I don’t really know what makes a great actor, but if I needed to point to an example of someone out there today making great films and TV shows, I’d go with Mr. Giamatti.
