Welcome to the CFS Blog

The organizers of the Chicago Film Seminar hope that this blog can achieve multiple purposes for the CFS:

  • Announcing and profiling upcoming speakers
  • Posting abstracts or summaries of CFS presentations
  • Posting summaries of formal responses to talks
  • Allowing for more sustained discussion of the content of these talks, or of other ongoing research projects, new books or articles, etc.
  • Providing links to local film and media departments, resources, and special events
  • Sustaining a communal conversation that encourages greater attendance at monthly talks
  • Encouraging more forms of energetic involvement with the CFS, and ongoing discussions about its goals and prospects

    Please stay tuned as this blog develops. We look forward to seeing you in the comment threads, and at our 2010-11 presentations!

    In the Comments: As a new or a longstanding participant in CFS, what would you most like to see happen on this blog? How can it serve to enrich our Thursday night presentations and conversations, and how can it take on a productive, enjoyable life of its own?
