The MMI Institute

I am thrilled to have been accepted to the Institute in Film Criticism and Feature Writing, sponsored by the Museum of the Moving Image and the New York Times Foundation. There will be fifteen journalists from a wide variety of backgrounds who write for a wide variety of outlets. And the schedule they have for us is dazzling, with speakers and screenings. Monday we get to attend an editorial meeting at the New York Times. And Tuesday we hear from Martin Scorsese and his long-time editor, Thelma Schoonmaker.

We'll be very busy -- the institute has warned us there will be homework. But I will try to post some updates on this blog while I am there.
