Filmspotting Live!

Friday, January 13 @ 8:00pm – 10:00pm
Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago 915 East 60th Street 60637 Chicago , IL

After the lights are dimmed, the camera is off and action is cut, movies are released. Some are hits, others flops. Join Filmspotting’s Adam Kempenaar and Josh Larsen at their “2016 Wrap Party” as they break down the year in movies and highlight the best moments in film.

Adam, Josh and special guests including Stephen Cone, Michael Phillips and Tasha Robinson will introduce nominees and announce winners for pivotal movie moments that the Oscars don't mention. Awards include ‘Best Opening Scene,’ ‘Funniest Scene,’ ‘Most Moving Moment,’ ‘Best Music Moment’ and, the winner-take-all category, ‘Scene of the Year.’ The awards ceremony will also feature special video appearances from Joel Potrykus, David Chen & Joanna Robinson and Anna Rose Holmer!

Audience members will add their opinions during classic Filmspotting segments like ‘Massacre Theatre’ and the ‘Golden Brick Award,' an annual tradition where Adam and Josh crown the film that went overlooked by most critics.

For those who are unfamiliar with this long-running podcast, hosts review indie and mainstream flicks, blending the fun with the thoughtful—in-depth film discussions, interviews with actors and directors, movie marathons and weekly top 5 lists.
