The Cinephiliacs is a podcast exploring the past and future of cinephelia. Film critic Peter Labuza has interviewed critics, programmers, academics, filmmakers, and more about their relationship to film and film culture. Additionally, each guest will bring in a particular favorite film and discuss it with Labuza. Indiewire declares, "If you want to hear film critics talk at length about their craft, there are few better places on the Internet" and Keyframe Daily has called it "Exhibit A" for the future of film culture

Among the Most Unique Film Podcasts Out There

Finding a movie podcast nowadays is extremely easy -- maybe *too* easy. Most (even the best) follow the same format and tend to discuss the same things, but The Cinephiliacs stands out for being about the watchers themselves. A whole different beast, which is what makes this a compulsively listenable (and relistenable) show; through the discussions, you even come to learn a thing or two about how to hone your own critical skills.

Best around

Easily the best film podcast you can find. Great insight on what it's like be a true and fully devoted cinephile.

A Thoughtful and Enthusiastic Approach to Cinema

Peter has hosted some really excellent guests from all aspects of cinema, and within any given episode the discussion can range from personal and emotional to academic and historical. A lot of other podcasts seem to be off-the-cuff, but it's easy to tell on Cinephiliacs that consideration and research went into the interviews, which still play out naturally as conversations. As such, the shows are always smart, and often both funny and moving - just like the best films. This podcast has helped me to learn more about not only the specific films discussed (and there's a range, I like listening to discussions about my favorites as well as films I've never heard of), but about different approaches to cinema, and it's been inspiring to hear that some professionals have had similar experiences in starting out.
