Oscar Talk 2019

Join JBFC Board President Janet Maslin and the uncannily knowledgeable “Oscarologist” and noted film writer Mark Harris—also a JBFC board member—for what’s always a lively and illuminating discussion. It’s been another year of evolution and transformation within the film industry. The major films of the season (Black Panther, Roma, The Favourite, Green Book, to name a few) reflect this spirit of change and the wide range of cultural shifts they’ve inspired. This awards season has been divisive, full of surprises, and exciting as ever—and sure to make for a vibrant conversation.

Tickets: $12 (members), $17 (nonmembers)
