Hello Michigan!

Summer is officially over and all the kids are going back to school. Such is the case with friend of the podcast Akiva Gottlieb, who is off to make Ann Arbor his new home for some graduate program in thermonuclear dynamics and relating to Eric Rohmer. I’m not really sure.

But before that we discuss the nature of geographic cinema—in that how does one leaving New York for Michigan and continue to watch rep cinema? Do they wait for an IFC release to trickle out there, or do they resort to the Internet and torrenting? Does such a thing upset a director, as we ask Preston Miller (God’s Land), whose movie will play at the Buffalo Film Festival next month.

Hello East Village!

The Tribeca Film Festival is winding down and what better gift can we give you than our long-awaited fourth season of the Internet’s longest running podcast about drinking in a bar that also just happens to mention film? Not much.

But while I was in town covering the festival for Film Threat, we got the gang back together at Grassroots. Specifically we brought Andrew Grant (a.k.a. Filmbrain and President of Benten Films), Preston Miller (Jones, God’s Land), and Akiva Gottlieb (the Alejandro Adams of Twitter among other things) together at our hallowed wooden table to pontificate on things such as The Human Centipede and panels.
