All the Films Fit to Review: Media Coverage and the Independent Cinema
Rather than present the usual seminar with film critics attacking and being attacked by the filmmakers, we thought a more illuminating discussion would focus on broader questions of media policy toward independent cinema: how film is viewed within the media as news, entertainment and art; on what basis stories are assigned and films reviewed and how space or airtime is allocated. "Policymakers" - editors, publishers and broadcast producers- from various media will discuss these and other issues, with our not-so-hidden agenda being the way independents can achieve greater access to print, television and radio coverage.
