About

Love to read with my dog cradled on my chest …

Hi! My name is Christopher Llewellyn Reed (you can call me Chris), and I am a film critic, filmmaker and longtime educator, currently Professor and Chair of the Department of Film and Moving Image at Stevenson University. A brand-new member (as of May, 2018) of the Washington DC Area Film Critics Association (WAFCA) and a Rotten Tomatoes-approved film critic, I am lead film critic at Hammer to Nail, an online magazine devoted to independent cinema; film critic at Film Festival Today; the host of Dragon Digital Media’s award-winning “Reel Talk with Christopher Llewellyn Reed“; a regular film commentator for the “Roughly Speaking” podcast with Dan Rodricks at The Baltimore Sun; an occasional writer for the online magazine BmoreArt; and the author of Film Editing: Theory and Practice. In addition, since January, 2018, I am one of three co-creators of The Fog of Truth a podcast devoted to documentary cinema.

As far as how I got to where I am today, it started off with Russian literature, and not film. I hold a B.A. from Harvard University, in Slavic Languages and Literatures (concentration in Russian), an M.A from Yale University, in Russian and East European Studies (concentration in Russian Film) – you can see the transition – and an M.F.A. from the Graduate Film Program at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. And there you have it.

    Chris! It was nice to sit with you at the Filmmakers Lounge/Windup Space on Sunday. Thanks so much for talking to me! I am embarrassed to admit that I have already managed to misplace your business card so I thought I would reach out. Here is my work email: jkeller@nmwa.org. Could you tell me again the name of your Film Fatale contact? I want to pass it along to our public programs manager Melani Douglass. And keep in touch! Yours, Julia
