Hunter College Presents Talking Movies

Talking Movies Logo

TALKING MOVIES is one of New York’s top film series. Our program is designed for the passionate film goer interested in Hollywood, Independent, foreign films and documentaries that keep the discussion going long after the curtain comes down. We opt for films that move us, make us laugh or just plain entertain.

TIMEOUT, NY calls the film series “Witty and Informed!”

The series meets in the Fall and Spring and is co-hosted by the nationally-known film and theater critic Jeffrey Lyons and film executive Roberta Burrows.

At Talking Movies you'll discover future actors, directors and producers as well as meet such celebrated filmmakers as Alan Alda, Javier Bardem, Benjamin Bratt, Ed Burns, Ethan Hawke, Marcia Gae Harden, Hal Holbrook, James McAvoy, Stanley Tucci and Franco Zeffirelli.

"I am convinced that a good Q&A always fills in some of the question marks, and ultimately makes the film experience a fuller one." —Benjamin Bratt, actor

At your private screenings, you'll see films like City Island, La Mission, The Lives of Pippa Lee, and The Last Station. We particularly like independent films that are character driven and tell a story.

The Q&A following the screening is your time to ask producers and directors about filmmaking and ask actors about their creative process.
