    Inside John Green's Film Premiere

    Inside John Green's Film Premiere

    Creator, author, and Vlogbrother John Green first broke out into the mainstream spotlight when the film adaptation of his best-selling book 'The Fault in Our Stars' grossed over $300 million at the box office in 2014.
    Ten years (and two more adaptations) later, John's 'Turtles All the Ways Down' is releasing on Max. Ahead of the in-person premiere, Publish Press writer Nate Graber-Lipperman sat down with John to hear his thoughts on the "collision course" of YouTube and Hollywood—and how growing online communities too large can paradoxically make their impact lesser.
    Plus: Stick to the end for Colin and Samir's thoughts on what creators can learn from John about how to make real impact in viewers' lives.
