During the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, revolutionary poet Matt Sedillo came up with the idea and show title for a web-based film review show of classic/foreign/art films that meet a certain "criterion." Sedillo reached out to filmmaker and poet Jeanne Marie Spicuzza (Night Rain) and also to the nationally-touring spoken word artist David A. Romero (My Name Is Romero) with the intent for them to meet up, whether digitally, or in person, to discuss great films, and thus, The Criterion Collective was born.

Each Saturday, LIVE from Matt Sedillo's Facebook page at 1 PM PST, The Collective reviews a film chosen by a member of The Collective, or, by a special guest. 

Episodes are added to this page following each live recording. Episodes are also available on Anchor and Spotify.
