MIFF Talks: Consuming Culture Unclassified 15+

Movies. Television. Books. Art. The entire internet. An always-timely conversation about how and what we’re consuming, and why.

A roundtable discussion of critics, comedians, filmmakers and writers dedicated to what we’re up to and how we’re up to when it comes to watching, reading, and otherwise consuming film and media since last MIFF. Join Vidya Rajan, Jourdain Searles and Charlie Shackleton as they hash out their cultural habits. Moderated by Brodie Lancaster.
