Cineaste on Film Criticism Programming and Preservation in the New Millennium

Author: Cynthia Lucia
Publisher: University of Texas Press
ISBN: 9781477313411
Release Date: 2017-11-01
Genre: Performing Arts

Digital technology and the Internet have revolutionized film criticism, programming, and preservation in deeply paradoxical ways. The Internet allows almost everyone to participate in critical discourse, but many print publications and salaried positions for professional film critics have been eliminated. Digital technologies have broadened access to filmmaking capabilities, as well as making thousands of older films available on DVD and electronically. At the same time, however, fewer older films can be viewed in their original celluloid format, and newer, digitally produced films that have no "material" prototype are threatened by ever-changing servers that render them obsolete and inaccessible. Cineaste, one of the oldest and most influential publications focusing on film, has investigated these trends through a series of symposia with the top film critics, programmers, and preservationists in the United States and beyond. This volume compiles several of these symposia: "Film Criticism in America Today" (2000), "International Film Criticism Today" (2005), "Film Criticism in the Age of the Internet" (2008), "Film Criticism: The Next Generation" (2013), "The Art of Repertory Film Exhibition and Digital Age Challenges" (2010), and "Film Preservation in the Digital Age" (2011). It also includes interviews with the late, celebrated New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael and the critic John Bloom ("Joe Bob Briggs"), as well as interviews with the programmers/curators Peter von Bagh and Mark Cousins and with the film preservationist George Feltenstein. This authoritative collection of primary-source documents will be essential reading for scholars, students, and film enthusiasts.
