Fritzi Kramer from MoviesSilently and Jill Blake from The Retro Set, a freelance writer for TCM and formerly FilmStruck join to discuss the big week with the end of FilmStruck, the potential end of Fandor, and all of the implications. From there we discuss how to balance the restoration, curation and exhibition of classic and art film in a culturally and commercially viable way. We discuss the challenges of obtaining access to film history, whether that includes larger, more popular titles, or obscure niche titles. Finally we talk about the future of film, how to reconcile the streaming initiatives of the major studios, and how to manage civil discourse within the community during such an uncertain period.
