Talking Back to the Screen: Feminism & Film Criticism

Monthly filmmaking forum presented by Indie Memphis and Crosstown Arts
April topic: Hair & Makeup for Film with Alicia George

In Alice Bolin’s upcoming book, Dead Girls, she writes about moving to L.A. and seeing the city through a white male literary lens, and needing to trust her own eyes rather than what she’s read. Miriam Bale’s path through the male-dominated world of film criticism at New York newspapers was similarly one of learning to trust her own eyes. The two writers will have a dialogue about different ways to engage with writing about film, a misogynistic industry, as women. Dead Girls (which covers Twin Peaks to True Detective) is an essay collection out in June 2018 from William Morrow/ HarperCollins. Alice Bolin teaches nonfiction at the University of Memphis.

Miriam Bale is new Senior Programmer of the Indie Memphis Film Festival.

Shoot & Splice: For The Love of Cinema with Rashna Richards

Rashna Richards will discuss what it means to teach Film and Media Studies in the twenty-first century. The first part of her talk will be based on her recent co-edited collection, For the Love of Cinema: Teaching Our Passion in and Outside the Classroom, which offers multiple ways to think about the relationship between the love of cinema and teaching. In the second half, she will expand this discussion by offering examples of her own teaching at Rhodes College and speaking more broadly about the role of film education.

Shoot & Splice: An Evening with Graham Gordy

Monthly filmmaking forum presented by Indie Memphis and Crosstown Arts.

Join Indie Memphis & Crosstown Arts for a very special Shoot & Splice: An Evening with Graham Gordy. Mr. Gordy is perhaps best known as the creator and executive producer of the partially shot and Memphis-set Cinemax series Quarry. Hear from Graham about his experiences in making the series and working as a writer in the so-called “golden age of television,” as well as how he’s gone about making a career for himself while still calling the South his home.
