No Coast Cinema Ep. 38 | Erik Childress, Chicago Critics Film Festival

Film critic Erik Childress

Tom is flying solo this week on No Coast Cinema as he sits down with film critic and board member of the Chicago Film Critics Association Erik Childress to preview the 6th Annual Chicago Critics Film Festival.

Together they discuss the nature of modern criticism, how we can become more active readers of criticism and why Chicago has such a rich history of great critics. Plus they take a look at some of the highlights of the upcoming festival which runs May 4th to May 10th at the legendary Music Box Theatre.
