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.

Prey Bodies Bodies Bodies

As we enter late August, big summer releases are tapering off, and the awards seeking prestige pictures have yet to be released. For this episode, Alan and Chris opted to review two smaller-scale films: the straight-to Hulu action feature PREY and the A24 studio horror comedy BODIES BODIES BODIES. In the show’s news portion, the hosts discuss the 2016 shelved film from Jamie Foxx, the BATGIRL/FLASH movie debate and the upcoming Peter Farrelly project THE GREATEST BEER RUN EVER. Rounding out the episode are recommendations on films you might want to check out.

Recommendations from our hosts in this episode: “Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes”, “Silver Linings Playbook”, “The Sandman”

Footcandle Film Festival will be held September 21st – 25th 2022 in Hickory, NC!

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!)
