Spotlight on the Criterion Collection


With its unparalleled library of world classics and critically acclaimed contemporary films, exquisitely designed packaging, and demanding technical standards, the Criterion Collection remains the Tiffany's of important releases on home video.

Join Criterion Collection President Peter Becker and Producer Kim Hendrickson as they share the compelling history of the company and provide a behind-the-scenes look at Criterion's operation, focusing on recent and upcoming releases such as Noah Baumbach’s Frances Ha (2013), Robert Altman’s Nashville (1975), Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009), and Charlie Chaplin’s City Lights (1931), among others.

Following the talk, stick around for a 35mm screening of City Lights, perhaps Chaplin’s greatest achievement, which follows the iconic Tramp as he falls in love with a blind flower girl. (87 mins., 35mm)
