For our first podcast episode of 2020, Film Editor Grant Phipps sits down with contributors Edwanike Harbour and Jason Fuhrman to reflect on the experiences they’ve had going to the movies in Madison over the past year, and what they’re hoping 2020 will bring.

We’ll be publishing more film coverage this winter and spring as various local screening series and events get underway, including the lineup at UW Cinematheque and the 2020 Wisconsin Film Festival. Check out our roundup of our best film coverage from 2019 and Grant’s preview of Cinematheque’s spring 2020 season with Project Assistant Zachary Zahos.
