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.

Being the C’mon C’mon Ricardos

The Oscar nominations for the year in film that was 2021 have been announced. The hosts share their thoughts on the news as well as film reviews of BEING THE RICARDOS & C’MON, C’MON. Alan leaves film recommendation duties to Chris who shares what he now thinks is his favorite documentary of the past year…and yeah…he’s a little surprised it didn’t get any nomination love.

Recommendation from Chris in this episode: “The Rescue”

Alan Jackson is the co-founder of the 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!)
