Houston Film Critics Society To Hold Virtual "POTUS Fest" On October 25

Hail to the chief(s)
Hail to the chief(s) Houston Film Critics Society
You may have heard there's an election coming up. In the spirit of the American Experiment, the Houston Film Critics Society is celebrating the "reel lessons of leadership" with a salute to films about U.S. Presidents and the election process in POTUS Fest: Cinema in Chief.

Society members’ comments and reviews on Presidential films can now be viewed at HoustonFilmCritics.com. According to the Society:

Participating members chose these films for the ways in which they enhance understanding of what it takes to lead the United States. From fictional to actual narratives, these films illuminate the demands, disappointments, and determination that define our Presidents.
The film reviews will also include information on where these films can be found and seen. In addition, the Society will offer a Zoom discussion on Sunday, October 25 at 3 p.m. Central featuring a panel of three members, Joe Leydon (Variety), Joshua Starnes (Coming Soon), and Donna Copeland (Texas Art & Films). Each will discuss the American President in cinema and take questions from their online audience. The Zoom discussion is available at no charge to those who reserve a ticket, while supplies last.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
