Media Legacy Award: Eric Kohn


Showing In

The Grand Seduction (Opening Night)
California Theatre, San Jose Tue, Mar 4, 2014 7:00 PM
Cinequest opens in grand fashion as the lights dim, and we present an uproarious comedy from director Don McKellar (Last Night) and screenwriter Michael Dowse (Goon), starring a brilliant cast that includes Brendan Gleeson (“Mad-Eye” Moody from the Harry Potter films), Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights), and Liane Balaban (Supernatural).


Indiewire has undoubtedly had the most impact on independent cinema since it began in 1996, and as their Chief Film Critic and Senior Editor—and manager of their Criticwire Network—Eric Kohn enlightens audiences through enthusiastic and intelligent insight that immediately sparks conversation amongst industry and fans alike. Prior to Indiewire, Kohn worked with film festivals and reviewed domestic and international films for numerous entertainment publications. A recent member of the New York Film Critics Circle, Kohn believes that critics should develop an authoritative voice with their work.

Join us at our Opening Night on Tuesday, March 4th at the California Theatre, when Eric Kohn will be the first recipient of the Cinequest Media Legacy Award. After an engaging conversation with Mr. Kohn, we’ll continue the evening with the incredibly entertaining film The Grand Seduction, followed by a spectacular party.
