Short Films, Short Attention Spans

10:15—11am

 

As we are fully enmeshed in the digital era, short films have more platforms than ever. But is it art or content? And, does it matter?

With Mona Panchal (VP Digital, Topic Studios), Nikyatu (director, Suicide by Sunlight), Lotfy Nathan (co-director, Days of Black and Yellow), Sean Weiner (Director of Creative Culture, Jacob Burns Film Center)

 
Art House is Dead / Long Live Art House!

11:20am—12:05pm

 

Exploring the power and necessity of the movie-going experience in the golden age of streaming services.

With Gina Duncan (Associate Vice President of Film, BAM), Lesli Klainberg (Executive Director, Film at Lincoln Center), Mike Maggiore (Programmer, Film Forum), Rajendra Roy (Chief Curator of Film, The Museum of Modern Art), Alison Kozberg (Managing Director, Art House Convergence)

 
 
 
Critically Minded

12:30—1:15pm

 

Is film criticism a dying industry in the crowd-sourced era? Or do we need professional observers of cinema to help us understand the work, and our own feelings about them?

With Kameron Austin Collins (Film Critic, Vanity Fair), Monica Castillo (freelance film critic and features editor, CherryPicks), Doreen St. Felix (Staff Writer, The New Yorker), Tayler Montague (freelance writer & film programmer), Elizabeth Méndez Berry (Director of Voice, Creativity & Culture, The Nathan Cummings Foundation)

 
 
Producing Powerhouse

2—2:45pm

 

Real talk about budgets—and profit—and an insider's perspective on the role of creative producing today.

With Dani Tate Melia (producer, The Farewell), Beth Levison (producer, 32 Pills: My Sister's Suicide), Michelle Byrd (Managing Director, PGA East), Jamund Washington (producer, Gimme The Loot, Tramps, Random Acts of Flyness)

 
 
 
Making Your Film Your Own

3:15—4pm

 

Directors working with limited budgets face great challenges in production—but these boundaries can often lead to incredible and unique films. Hear from several outstanding BAMcinemaFest filmmakers about the inspiration and paths of making their own films, and the personal spin they impart.

With Debra Granik (director, Leave No Trace), Jessie Jeffrey Dunn Rovinelli (director, So Pretty), Diana Peralta (director, De Lo Mio), Hilary Brougher (director, South Mountain)
