Join Me Tonight at Filmfest DC

Posted on April 21, 2016 at 10:00 am

Travis Hopson of WETA Around Town, Jason Fraley of WTOP Radio, and I will join celebrated television movie critic Arch Campbell in a panel discussion about the world of movies, both on and off the screen. With Netflix and Amazon expanding into producing or buying first-run features, the lines between television and feature films are becoming more blurred. How does this situation affect commercial film distribution? The once-staid Academy Awards® were embroiled in controversy this year over minority representation. There seem to be more and more superhero-oriented, special-effects blockbusters geared to young men. Given the success of art houses like Landmark Theaters E Street Cinema, why aren’t more quality films being exhibited? The media experts will discuss these issues and many more.

It’s free, at Washington DC’s Landmark E Street Theater, 7 pm tonight. Please join us!
