Romance & Cigarettes Screening with John Turturro

Second update: John Turturro’s Q&A has been edited and uploaded for those not able to attend the event. Please see it above, or visit the SVA Film Vimeo page here. And check back next month for our Q&A with Remote Area Medical filmmakers, Jeff Reichert and Farihah Zaman.


Update: Due to limited space, there are no more available seats for Romance and Cigarettes. Please check back for more updates, and the announcement of next month’s film.


John Turturro will be here with Adam Schartoff (right), to launch our new series of screenings, plus host the Q&A afterwards. Schartoff is the host of Filmwax Radio’s independent film podcast.

Wednesday, February 24th, 6:30 PM at 209 East 23rd St, Room 502.

This is the first in a new independent film series, designed to enrich the SVA community’s experience by watching great films, then meeting the filmmaker afterwards and participating in a Q & A with the filmmaker. Students can learn the filmmakers’ techniques, struggles and best practices. The series will consist of one film every month from now until the end of the semester.
