Abstract

UK film critic Mark Cousins laments the profit-driven, limo-polluted, red-carpet nature of contemporary film festivals and argues that, instead of reliance on faux-Hollywood glamour, they ought to radically challenge audiences about the nature of politics, of spectatorship, and of the cinema itself. He decries the function of the film festival as an alternative distribution center of the cinema and condemns this form of festival as a simple adjunct of commercial cinema.
