Alumni Film Critique Night

Join us for a Alumni Film Critique Night, a monthly film critique salon that fosters a Tisch alumni community centered on artistic and critical discussion of cinematic practices.

By gathering moving image analysts, archivists and curators hailing from cinema studies and film directors, editors, cinematographers, sound designers, production designers, actors, screenwriters and video artists to screen and discuss their works-in-progress, Tisch engages alumni across the film, dramatic writing, acting and cinema studies disciplines.

Welcoming experimental, documentary, video art and conventional narrative moving image, the Tisch Alumni Film Critique Night cultivates a community of filmmakers expanding cinematic practices, devising new aesthetics and honing professional skills through peer-driven feedback and in-depth artistic discussion of works-in-progress.

Each work is screened individually, introduced by the filmmaker sharing a bit about themselves, and the work prior to screening. After each screening, the floor opens up to crits: comments and questions constructively exploring the work in the context most appropriate for the artist’s intensions, aesthetics, creative methods and approach.

Each monthly critique night is limited to 5 filmmakers, with a screening duration limit of 10 minutes, a 2-minute introduction and 15 minutes discussion. The order of presentation is designated in the order the filmmaker’s RVSP was received (first come, first serve).
The entire critique night runs two and a half hours and includes light refreshments.

Sign up here to both screen your digital cinema work at the NYU Tisch Alumni Film Critique Night and to simply RSVP to attend.
