1 on 1 With A.O. Scott


The 41st Cleveland International Film Festival is thrilled to announce a CIFF Special Presentation: A One-on-One Conversation with A.O. Scott, which will take place Saturday, April 8th at 2:30 p.m. at the Ritz-Carlton Cleveland. The Plain Dealer’s Joanna Connors will also participate in the hour-long program where Mr. Scott will discuss film, art, and the importance and evolution of film festivals.

Mr. Scott is the film critic at The New York Times, frequent contributor to the paper’s Book Review and Sunday Magazine, and a constant champion of film festivals.
Tickets are $35 and include a paperback copy of Mr. Scott’s book, Better Living Through Criticism: How to Think About Art, Pleasure, Beauty, and Truth, which was published to wide acclaim in 2016. Mr. Scott will be available after the program to sign copies of his book (additional copies will be available for purchase).
