The Film Review: An Inside Look at the Formidable Responsibility of a Film Critic
Friday, June 2, 2017 at 3:00PM

Greenwich Arts Council
299 Greenwich Ave
Greenwich, CT 06830

Ever since the dawn of cinema when the Lumiere Brothers first set up their cameras, there has been a flood of filmmakers who have attempted, in various ways, to capture "objective truth" on celluloid. For almost as long, film criticism has wrestled with the difficulties inherent in the process of analyzing a film objectively. Is it possible—or even desirable—for film criticism to be free from personal bias? And what is a critics responsibility to the success or failure of a film? A critics response can ultimately be the make or break of that movie’s future in terms of festival play, its distribution success, and its box office prowess. Join us in a conversation with top film critics as we discuss objective criticism and the formidable responsibility these heavy hitters have over the future of a film.

Panelists: Richard Lawson (Vanity Fair), Alison Willmore (Buzzfeed), Marshall Fine (General Manager, NYFCC), and Chris Nashawaty (Entertainment Weekly).
Moderator: Joe Meyers (CT Post)
