What he does: Schmenner leads the Block Cinema, a collaboration of the Mary
Leigh Block Museum of Art, the School of Communication and a student group
known as the Film and Projection Society. Over the past two years, Block Cinema
has created a diverse program fostering film culture through exhibitions of
film and events featuring scholars, critics, and filmmakers. In working closely
with students and faculty, Block Cinema creates a forum for critical discussion
of film based in education, art and entertainment.
For the love of the cinema: “I’m interested in movies because we
are still learning and debating what kind of art they are. I enjoy my job because
running a cinema, like making a movie, is a collaborative process. My work
with students and faculty keeps it fun and challenging.”
