Today’s /Filmcast Marathon Features Celebrity Guests and a Good Cause


It all kicks off at 9am Pacific. After raising $10,000 for FilmAid, David Chen and the /Filmcast family are making good on their offer to rock a 10-hour podcasting marathon, and since it’s done like a reverse-telethon, no one will be constantly promising you tote bags in return for your money. That leaves more time to talk with an excellent lineup of guests. The sad part? No tote bags.

Rian Johnson is batting first, followed by the 10am segment with me and David Wain, followed by an 11am with Damon Lindelof. And then, 7 more hours of filmmaker guests and shenanigans. So bookmark this page and plan to camp out there all day today.

If you need more incentive, here’s the full lineup:

All times are PACIFIC
9 AM – 10 AM: Writer/Director Rian Johnson
10 AM – 11 AM: Writer/Director/Actor David Wain (with Scott Beggs from FilmSchoolRejects)
11 AM – noon: Writer/Producer Damon Lindelof
noon – 1 PM: Director Bryan Singer and Director Jason Reitman
1 PM – 2 PM: Writer C. Robert Cargill and Matt Singer from Indiewire

A veteran of writing about movies for nearly a decade, Scott Beggs has been the Managing Editor of Film School Rejects since 2009. Despite speculation, he is not actually Walter Mathau's grandson. See? He can't even spell his name right.
