Screeners get The Treatment

| 1 Comment

Elvis Mitchell pulls together a pretty decent panel to talk about the screeners issue on The Treatment this Wednesday, 2:30 p.m. on KCRW (89.9). Says the KCRW release:

New York Times film critic Elvis Mitchell discusses the Motion Picture Association of America's ban on "Academy screener" cassettes with an industry panel made up of Robert Altman (Director, Gosford Park), Michelle Byrd (Executive Director, IFP / New York), Jeffrey Levy-Hinte (Producer, Thirteen), Ted Hope (Producer, American Splendor), Dawn Hudson (Executive Director, IFP / Los Angeles), and Bingham Ray (President, United Artists).

A show with Gus Van Sant as the guest was bumped to let this one go first.
