Audio Postcard: Why do you love film?

To travel to another place. To merge multiple forms of expression. To expand your imagination and learn about diverse lives. To simply enjoy visual art.

At our monthly screening this past November, we posed a simple question to our fans: Why do you love film? In this audio postcard, we hear the results. Filmworks hopes to explore the many reasons you come out to the movies through occasional “I Heart Film” features this year.

Kristin Torres, one of our volunteers, compiled the interviews and edited the audio. A Fresno native, Kristin works as a freelance writer and radio producer. She has lived and worked in Missouri, Washington, D.C., and in Russia for organizations such as National Public Radio and Moscow’s New Economic School.

Every second Friday of the month, Fresno Filmworks screens first-run independent and international movies at the historic Tower Theatre.
