Winona State University library technician Nathan Wardinski will present “Do Film Critics Matter?” at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14, on the second floor of the Darrell W. Krueger Library.

For most of the history of cinema, film criticism has been limited to a select few. The internet has democratized film criticism and flooded the market with new voices leaving many film critics out of work. Wardinski will discuss the change in film criticism and speculate on its value and function for the future.
