Happy Friday folks! The Smart Philm Festival is taking place this weekend at American University in Washington, D.C. This is the only festival in DC dedicated to showing films created on mobile phones and tablets, and festival founder Thomas Debass stops by to talk about what you can expect to see this year. I also have the Managing Editor of Screenrant.com, Ben Kendrick, drop in to talk about his journey in film criticism and his day to day experiences at the behemoth website. Finally, I have Desson Thomson, Director of Executive Communications of the Motion Picture Association of America, on to talk about the MPAA and what they do other than rate films. Desson is also the former professor who sparked my love for deeper analysis of film. So this is a special one folks!
