    Consolidating Film Forums

    Just a note to let announce that the separate film criticism forum has been folded back into the main Film forum. Because we have disabled the rating system, it no longer makes sense to separate the sections as we had been doing before. No posts have been deleted -- just merged.

    About IMAGE

    Dear A&Fers: ArtsandFaith is now sponsored by IMAGE -- http://imagejournal.org. So this forum will serve a couple important purposes. It will be a place where you can comment on, or ask questions about, any aspect of IMAGE's programs -- our journal, the Glen Workshop, our blog, "Good Letters," etc., etc. It will also be the place where IMAGE posts announcements we think will be of interest to you-all. Keep in mind that supporting IMAGE is now a way to support ArtsandFaith -- as we put staff time and budget into keeping this forum alive and kicking we need to find new resources. The best way to support IMAGE is to subscribe to our quarterly print journal -- http://imagejournal.org/page/subscribe/. Of course, we're a non-profit, so you can donate, too, but I won't push that option on you today! Cheers, Greg Wolfe
  3. Hey, A&F Friends: As you probably know, I'm just not able to be a frequent presence here on the forums, but Image has just produced what I humbly believe to be a pretty great issue devoted to film and guest edited by Scott Teems and Gareth Higgins. Contributors include David Lowery, James Ponsoldt, Debra Granik, Mira Nair, Rodrigo Garcia, Scott Derrickson, and many more. My immediate desire is to see that the world learns about the goodness of this issue. Does anyone have any ideas about how to get the world out (without incurring any financial expense? ). Any critics, reviewers, bloggers, and such who might be willing to mention it? We'll send a free copy to anyone who legitimately MIGHT mention it somewhere, either in a post or tweet or what-have-you. Thoughts? Gratefully, Greg

    The Image Film Issue -- Help with PR

    Anyone? Friends, issues of Image like this don't come around that often. The window of opportunity for maximum impact is very brief. It would be great if you-all could blog and tweet about it. Heck, I'll even send you a free copy if you don't subscribe, with no strings attached. Yours in hope, Greg

    No worries, Peter. We've appreciated your presence before and expect to do so again. Glad you could have some good family time.

    Live Oscar Chat???

    Is there any desire to do this sort of thing again? If so, what's the latest suggestion for most effective method? Facebook or something else?

    Live Oscar Chat???

    Here's the link to the Facebook event we created to host the Oscar chat. Hope you guys can make it. You'd really enrich the conversation and experience. https://www.facebook.com/events/1836771273246138/

    Could y'all give me names of good book publishers who publish good, thoughtful books on film? Thanks!

    Beautiful. Thank you, Michael!
  13. Went poking around to see if I could turn the moderator approval off but couldn't find where to control that. Maybe Evan or Opus could help out? My thought is that we keep a fairly tight lid on members here so I'm inclined to shut off moderation in the Visual Art and Architecture section.... Let me know if someone can help out with that setting. Thx.
  14. Interesting. Maybe an old setting put in place by someone anxious about what sorts of visuals might get posted???

    Another Anglican Beach Party Painting

    No, it's not. We're investigating. Sorry about this.
  16. Neither have I. I wonder how this happened and how to turn it off.

    Image Fall Appeal: Please Help Support A&F

    Update: 9 members of A&F have donated $205 through the specific portal I sent y'all. Thank you. Might we still hope for more? Wouldn't it be nice and just and charitable for the community at least sustain the hard cost of maintaining the site (leaving aside the paid and volunteer labor lavished on this forum)? We are still short of our goal. :-) Thanks for considering it. https://actionpage.causeview.com/actionpage/65619201528112326 Yours, Greg
  18. Dear A&Fers: As we pause to celebrate Thanksgiving, I certainly give thanks for the lively, thoughtful community here at ArtsandFaith.com. Image is proud to serve the conversation here. Some of you may have received an email from me today asking if you can contribute to Image's year-end funding appeal. I'm posting this note for those who may not be in our system but who might want to help. Hard costs to maintain A&F are about $600 for the year, but quite a bit more when you factor in actual staff time. One reason we were asked to take over was that it's just too much for a single individual. So my hope and prayer is that y'all might be willing to contribute, even a widow's mite. Personally, I'd rather have everyone give $5 a month than a year-end check, but know that anything you can give will be appreciated. Here's the link: https://actionpage.causeview.com/actionpage/65619201528112326 Blessings, Greg Wolfe

    Image Fall Appeal: Please Help Support A&F

    We are very grateful to the 8 members of the A&F community who have donated to the Image fall appeal (my last email erroneously said 9 had given). I know many of your give at the very end of the year.... But some of you also go offline during that same period, so here's my last reminder for the next 10 days! Not to scare anyone but this is turning out to be a really tough year for Image. We are hoping to avoid cuts in programming or personnel. https://actionpage.causeview.com/actionpage/65619201528112326 Thanks for considering it! Advent and Christmas blessings on one and all, Greg Wolfe

    Fantasy Football 09 (now 2013)

    Darrel, I sent you a message via Yahoo. I have two more players who could join the A&F league, bringing us to 10 teams. Or I could add them to my league for 12 teams. What would you prefer?

    If anyone is interested, I am also running a 6 x 6 rotisserie league -- we have a few spaces left. (But fill A&F first!)
