The Life of Film: Celebrating a Decade of Reverse Shot

April 4–7, 2013

Organized by guest curators Michael Koresky and Jeff Reichert, editors of Reverse Shot

Founded in early 2003, the online film magazine Reverse Shot is one of the most vital voices in contemporary film criticism. Amidst constant chatter about the death of film, the publication's editors, staff writers, and contributors have participated in an ongoing critical experiment that seeks to keep film—and rigorous film criticism—alive. For this tenth-anniversary celebration, Reverse Shot writers present a selection of films from the past decade that they believe best represent the ongoing excitement and possibility of movies. All of these works—challenging and entertaining narrative, avant-garde, or documentary works—point the way to an exciting cinematic future.
