Think of M&E as People Entertainment, Not Winners vs. Losers

“We need to take control of our lives again. Work for need, not for greed. And not just to survive like a dog, but to live. And to celebrate. And to dance, to sing, as free human beings.”  -- James Gralton, “Jimmy’s Hall,” Sixteen Films, 2014

A week or so ago we attended what has to be about our fifth movie screening (thanks to THR and the sponsors). 

We like them because we enjoy the Q&A with the directors, producers and key folks.  We like movies – good movies – but we’re also very interested in the stories behind the films.

The problem is the screenings are virtual or terribly distanced. 

You laugh … you cry … you cringe … you cheer … but you’re freakin’ alone!

We’re not a huge cinema attendance fan but are amused by researchers/fortune tellers who gaze into their crystal balls and say the pandemic forced the M&E industry 10-20 years into the future and that everything will stream.
