National Recognition for Ciné16 in St. Louis

by Michael R. Allen

The Ciné16 film series, founded by our now-relocated friends Margie Newman and Marc Syp and currently curated by Evalyn Williams, Claire Nowak-Boyd and myself was the subject of a story on NPR’s Morning Edition today. Thanks to Matt Sepic for producing the story and getting it to the national level.

This is great recognition of the unique cultural activity already happening in St. Louis. People who think that St. Louis is squandering its cultural potential really needs to leave their apartments more often.
