Hey, Portlanders! And people near Portland! Do you want to see a documentary about the history of film criticism, followed by a panel discussion featuring several prominent local film critics and also me? And do you also have nothing else to do on Valentine’s Day? Then I have just the thing!
On Sunday, the Portland International Film Festival will screen the film “For the Love of Movies” at 4:45 p.m. in the Whitsell Auditorium at the Portland Art Museum downtown. Immediately afterward, the filmmaker, Gerald Peary, will join me, Shawn Levy, Aaron Mesh, Erik Henriksen, and D.K. Holm for a panel discussion and Q&A about, I dunno, movie reviewing or something. Individual tickets to the screening/panel are $10, and you can buy them at the door. If you come, be sure to say hi afterward. I’ll be the one with the beard. No, three of us have beards. I’ll be the kind of round-shaped one. No, that’s most of us, too. I’ll be the one named Eric D. Snider.
