Host Will DiGravio is joined by his fellow co-editors of the 2019 Sight & Sound magazine poll of the best video essays of the year, Grace Lee (What’s So Great About That?) and Ariel Avissar. They discuss what it was like editing the poll, what changed about the poll this year, how they’d like to see the poll evolve in the future, and how they made their own selections. The second half of the show features commentary from nine contributors to this year’s poll: Chloé Galibert-Laîné, Scout Tafoya, Jason Mittell, Philip Brubaker, Andrea Moran (on behalf of FILMADRID), Shannon Strucci, Ian Garwood, Oswald Iten, and Johannes Binotto.
