Programming Now is a two-day roundtable discussion that explores the labour, challenges and love behind film programming. How do we build a more inclusive and sustainable way of encountering film in our hypermediated world? How can we maintain a balance between artistic integrity and accessibility? Join us as we dive deep into the nuts and bolts of film programming.
The first session will discuss film programming as a profession, as well as its values and currency amid growing precarity in the global festival industry. As programmers juggle these tensions, questions of artistic integrity, taste and representation continue to shape what it means to be a film programmer today.
