Criticwire Presents: Film Critics vs. the World

In the media age, the intersection between film critics and the film industry has never been more vocal. Opinions are given, read at a heightened rate and can have a hand in making or breaking the success of a project. Join Criticwire's Matt Singer as he leads an interactive debate about the highs and lows of the working relationship between critics and the film industry.

The first hour of the panel will involve a series of questions submitted by Indiewire readers prior to the event for debate by speakers followed by a Q&A session and discussion.
