Style And Profile: An Afternoon With Jim McBride

Jim McBride has been one of our most challenging and interesting filmmakers, working over the last 20 years to combine personal, and now virtually cult projects (DAVID HOLZMAN'S DIARY, MY GIRLFRIEND'S WEDDING) with major productions (BREATHLESS, THE BIG EASY). His early independent films, in fact, pre-date what we now identify as "the independent film movement." McBride's ability, perhaps preference to work on both sides of the law, independent and studio, marks him as an exemplary figure for today's independent filmmaker. Here, he will discuss his work and career, supplemented by film clips, in a session moderated by his frequent collaborator and Festival jury member L. M. Kit Carson.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications.

For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
