This week on Operation Kino, we're coming to you live! Well, we were if you attended our live show last Monday, where we got to be part of the inaugural year of the New York Hell's Kitchen Film Festival and bring the usual Operation Kino hijinks and slight disorganization to a live audience. Lucky for you, if you weren't there, we recorded the whole thing for this week's podcast, and you can listen below. We've changed up the format slightly for the sake of the live audience, but kick things off as usual with a Lightning Round dedicated to film festivals, then tidbits that are focused around a single theme: what we've learned at the movies this year, and what we're looking forward to this fall. Then, instead of the usual review and Segment 3, we bring in the audience for something called Film Court, which allows us to debate the relative merits of Steven Spielberg and Christopher Nolan, plus throwing down about whether or not we still need movie theaters. We end with the audience's lightning round answers for dessert.
And if you're still in New York and want to check out the Hell's Kitchen Film Festival for yourself, our very own Matt Patches will be conducting a Q&A on the closing night of the festival for the film Lost in Italy, with the movie's director and star Glen Murphy. It's happening this Sunday, September 11, at 7 p.m. at The Producer's Club. Check it out and tell Matt Patches that Operation Kino sent you!
