The Lens: Meet me in St. Louis

May 19, 2008

This article first appeared in the St. Louis Beacon: Robert Hunt, who is already firmly established as our most prolific correspondent, has been writing on film for nearly 30 years, appearing in an array of publications, both here and elsewhere. His lengthiest association was with the Riverfront Times, where he served as a film and DVD critic in the 1980s and '90s. Robert was also the manager of the Tivoli Theatre, curated (and self-financed) several excellent film series (I remember him manning the projector for a screening of "Mean Streets" in the late '70s at the First Unitarian Church), and was the first artistic director of the St. Louis Film Festival (before "International" was added to our name).

Jamieson Spencer, who contributes book reviews for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, works as an associate professor of English at the St. Louis Community College at Florissant Valley.

As for my own bona fides: Cliff Froehlich is the executive director of Cinema St. Louis. In years past, he worked as a film critic and executive editor at the Riverfront Times, managing editor of St. Louis Magazine and arts-and-entertainment editor at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. For 25 years, he's also served as an adjunct faculty member in film at Webster University.
