The Center for 21st Century Studies is pleased to cosponsor the Milwaukee Film Festival's State of Cinema keynote address.

For this year's keynote, four staff members of The Dissolve will take part in a roundtable discussion about the present and future of film and film criticism, moderated by former A.V. Club National Music Editor and current Milwaukee writer Steven Hyden (staff writer for Grantland, freelance writer for Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and others). They’ll also present Brian De Palma’s 1981 thriller Blow Out, collectively selected as one of their favorite films. Scheduled to appear from The Dissolve: Keith Phipps (Editorial Director), Scott Tobias (Editor, MFF 2010 juror), Tasha Robinson (Senior Editor), and Nathan Rabin (Staff Writer).

Following the State of Cinema keynote, Blow Out will be shown at 4 pm at Oriental Theatre, 2230 N Farwell Ave. A ticket is required!
