A live panel about movie recommendations! Special guests present their personal cinematic faves around a special theme.

VHS Tracking began as a semi-regular zine focused on movie recommendations from different writers edited by Tristan Fidler (co-host of the Movie Squad segment/podcast on RTRFM). Some issues of VHS Tracking might explore a theme – horror for Halloween, childhood favourites, science fiction, etc – and other issues would be more general, allowing contributors to offer engaging, succinct reviews of favourite movies, allowing for both obscure, little known titles and more mainstream releases that hold a place in the heart of the writer.

With VHS Tracking – Live, the publication becomes a live event for the first time, premiering a casual and informative evening devoted to expressing a love for the movies. A panel of guests will sit down and explore their movie recommendations based on a theme or two, spilling over into a general discussion that will interrogate movie reviews as a genre, the role of criticism and the act of recommendation.

As part of The Unexpected program in Winter Nights 2019. Presented by Tristan Fidler.
