Scorsese, Elmes, Scott Among MoMI Institute Visitors

A while back on The Reeler, we posited the possibility that the Museum of the Moving Image's upcoming Institute in Film Criticism and Feature Writing was the best thing to happen for film writers since junkets started serving lunch. But even that is turning out to be an understatement, especially when you have a run through the program (which launches tonight). A few samples:

Friday, April 20 --Film Criticism Today panel with Melissa Anderson (Time Out New York), Glenn Kenny (Premiere), A.O. Scott (The New York Times), Stephanie Zacharek (Salon)

--Speaker: Michael Barker (Sony Pictures Classics)

Saturday, April 21

--Nonprofit Programming and Exhibition panel with Karen Cooper (Film Forum), Laurence Kardish (Museum of Modern Art), Mike Maggiore (Film Forum), Richard Pena (Film Society of Lincoln Center)

Sunday, April 22

--Lunch with Warrington Hudlin (DV Republic) and Esther Iverem

--Indie Distribution panel with Eamonn Bowles (Magnolia Pictures), Ira Deutchmann (Emerging Pictures), Nancy Gerstman (Zeitgeist), Ryan Werner (IFC)

Monday, April 23

--Presentation: Cinematographer Frederick Elmes

--Meeting with New York Times film writers and editors.

Tuesday, April 24

-- Speaker: Mark Urman (ThinkFilm)

-- Speaker: Martin Scorsese

-- Presentation: Editor Thelma Schoonmaker

I don't have time to be jealous, but I'm sure it'll hit me once the program's inaugural participants start fanning out around Tribeca to share stories of how Elmes avoided gas-mask glare when lighting Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet or any kind of one-on-one with -- gulp -- Scorsese. Anyway. Another hat tip to MoMI for its ingenuity and support.
