The moderator of the discussion will be Joe Meyers, film critic from the Connecticut Post newspaper. Meyers has written about movies, theater and books for the Hearst Connecticut Media Group. For the past three years, he ran the Hearst Movie & a Martini club, which showed films all over Fairfield County, including a classic film series at the Bethel Cinema that featured restored versions of “The Third Man,” “Sweet Smell of Success” and many other great Hollywood productions.
Since 2016, Meyers has been director of programming for Focus on French Cinema, the five-day festival of the best new French language films held every April in Greenwich, Stamford and New York City.
For the past several years, he has hosted the French Cinematheque screenings at the Avon Theatre in Stamford, a monthly series that is co-sponsored by Focus on French Cinema and the Alliance Francaise of Greenwich.
