The Original Post of the National University’s Roundtable on Film Criticism

The vol. 13, no. 1 (2016) issue of the University of the Philippines College of Mass Communication’s journal, Plaridel: A Philippine Journal of Communication, Media, and Society, initially uploaded a file for “A Round Table [sic] Discussion on Poetics and Practice of Film Criticism,” which met with some derision among netizens for its errors in transcription. As a consequence, the editorial staff withdrew and revised the file in question. Unfortunately, the current version dispensed with the original’s open-forum section. Inasmuch as the timing of the roundtable was arguably in response to my article “A Lover’s Polemic,” I have claimed the prerogative to upload a PDF copy of the original file on Ámauteurish! – with an appeal to readers to refrain from remarking on the quality of the transcription. The file appears here primarily for the roundtable participants’ responses during the open forum.
