Film, fashion focus of ‘Artists & Critics’
The first of two “Artists & Critics” free panel discussions examines film as a means of creativity, expression, entertainment, persuasion and, at times, manipulation.

On Sept. 18 at 4 p.m. at the Carlos Museum, New York Times film critic A.O. Scott and Todd Field, screenwriter and director, will discuss their craft and its relation to other presenter’s roles and the public. Matthew Bernstein, professor and chair of Emory’s Film Studies Department, moderates.

Fashion is the focus of the next Artists & Critics panel in November.
