Footcandle Films

Hosted ByChris Frye & Alan Jackson

Do you like listening to people talk about films?  What about those films that may not show up at the local multiplex but are instead showing at the smaller specialty theater across town?  Then "Footcandle Films" may be the show for you.

I’m Thinking of Bill & Ted

2020 has been pretty strange. A third installment in the Bill & Ted series almost makes sense. Alan & Chris discusses the cinematic oddity as well as the new…well, yes odd – but in a completely different way – Charlie Kaufman film “I’m Thinking of Ending Things”. For the trailer tapas section, the hosts discuss the new “Dune” and “Freaky” trailers and then indulge in some extremely early Oscar prediction talk. As per the tried and true formula, they round out the episode with some film recommendations.

Recommendations: “Wildlife” , “Crimson Tide

Reviews: “Bill & Ted Face the Music” , “I’m Thinking of Ending Things

The Footcandle Film Festival will be held online September 23rd-27th 2020!

Alan Jackson is the co-founder of Footcandle Film Society and resides in Hickory, NC. He enjoys a wide variety of films – but mainly those of Martin Scorsese, his all-time favorite Director. Despite liking smaller, independent films, Alan also likes films with giant monsters or where animals talk. Alan also thinks Citizen Kane deserves every bit of credit it ever gets.

Chris Frye, the other co-founder of Footcandle Film Society, is a fan of directors such as Stanley Kubrick, Terry Gilliam, and David Gordon Green. He lives in Newton, NC and has always been a movie buff. His favorite actors range from Steve Coogan to Christoph Waltz to Jeff Bridges. You may be surprised to know he has never seen Dirty Dancing or Pretty in Pink (gasp!)
