Picture Lock: Women in Cinema Panel

After the success of our "State of Black Cinema" (below) panel in February, Picture Lock is honoring Women's History Month with a "Women in Cinema" Panel. Our expert panelists in film and television will examine the state of women in cinema and their contributions, large and small, to the art. We will also examine the evolution of women in above the line crew positions, the Bechdel test, the portrayal of women in film and television and more.

The format will be a live to tape studio audience discussion. Guests will have a chance to mingle at 7:30pm, with the town hall beginning promptly at 8pm. 

This event is FREE and open to the general public but there is limited seating in the studio, so you must RSVP through Eventbrite in order to attend this event.

Kevin Sampson

The fact that Kevin Sampson is not just a film critic, but a writer, producer, and director as well makes his understanding of cinema even better. Coming from a theoretical and hands on approach, he understands both sides of the struggle of viewing and creating great works. After receiving an MFA in Film & Electronic Media from American University in Washington, D.C in 2011, Kevin took his love for film to the next level by creating and producing Picture Lock, an entertainment website, podcast, and hour long film review TV show that runs on Arlington Independent Media’s public access station in Arlington, VA. The show covers new releases, classic films, and interviews with local filmmakers in the DMV area. He is also a member of the Washington DC Area Film Critics Association and African American Film Critics Association. He is currently looking forward to filming his first feature film in the near future. He believes that film is one of the most powerful art forms in the world, and he hopes that he can use the craft to inspire others and make a difference in it.
