Room for Discussion: Digital Criticism of Moving Images

Print journalism and film criticism are facing drastic changes as a result of digitalization. At the same time, however, the digital means of the production and reception of films can help us, possibly now more than ever, to view our society on a global scale.

In this thematic area we will ask about what potential a critic of moving images can have in the digital space.

This thematic area is curated by Jacqueline Beck, a freelance journalist based in Basel with a Bachelors degree in Media Studies and Cultural Anthropology from the University of Basel, and a Masters degree in Cultural Publishing from the Zurich University of the Arts. She writes on media, culture and society for various publications and has joined Filmexplorer shortly after its foundation.
