​The idea of the auteur – the filmmaker as an artist and author of his or her works – began in Paris in the late 1950s to 1960s, where filmmakers and critics reacted to the industrialization of filmmaking in the United States and Europe.

The French word auteur, author, describes a director who exerts a high level of control across all aspects of a film. Auteur directors generally have a distinctive style from film -to-film and often fill other roles besides directing, including writing, editing and sometimes acting in their own films.

The series will be held at the Duffin Theater in Lenox with Howie Arkans. He has had a keen interest in film since hischildhood, he says, and has taught Tuesday at the Movies for OLLI at BCC for the last 14 winters. He has been a REEL Friend of BIFF for many years.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
