Jake Wilson: Film Criticism Now

Session Info:

In an era when the Internet has increasingly taken over from traditional media, film criticism is changing almost as rapidly as film itself.  Can there be such a thing as an “objective” verdict on a film, and if not, what is the purpose of passing judgement?  Drawing on more than 15 years professional experience as a writer for both mainstream and specialist publications, this presentation takes a practical, interactive approach to the question of what film criticism means for both writers and readers. The presentation can be adjusted depending on audience needs.


• Criticism in the age of the Internet

• Techniques for engaging more closely and deeply with a film

• The reality of working within the Australian media

• The craft of writing
