Monthly filmmmaking forum presented by Indie Memphis and Crosstown Arts
June topic: Film Criticism
Have you ever seen a film that you loved and admired only to later read a critical review that pans it? Or, have you ever discovered a wonderful, obscure film because of a well-written and insightful review? Please join our esteemed panel of film critics — John Beifuss & Chris Herrington of The Commercial Appeal and Chris McCoy of The Memphis Flyer — as they discuss everything pertaining to the art of film criticism. They’ll share their unique approaches to writing a review, the power that critics have when it comes to affecting box office sales, how critical praise can save certain movies from obscurity, how social media has changed the landscape of film critique, and much more.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m./panel discussion begins at 7 p.m.
Free and open to the public. Complimentary beverages will be available.
