The webinar will explore the role the PFA and other non-profit exhibition institutions such as MoMA have played in shaping passion for global arthouse cinema. Longtime PFA curator Albert Johnson’s important legacy as a champion of world cinema will be discussed along with the PFA’s significance as a platform for black, African, and other international and independent filmmakers. FQ Editor in chief B. Ruby Rich will moderate a conversation with Kathy Geritz (BAMPFA), Edith Kramer (BAMPFA), Josslyn Luckett (Film Quarterly), Cornelius Moore (California Newsreel), Rajendra Roy (MoMA), and David Schwartz (Netflix).
