For the Love of Movies: The Story of American Film Criticism
Amy Geller, Producer
Amy Geller got her start in film as the Associate Director of the Boston Jewish Film Festival, where she worked for two years before becoming involved in production. Geller served as television field producer and production manager for J. Arnold Productions, whose work is seen regularly on network television, A&E, HBO, MTV, ESPN, Discovery Channel, PBS, and CNN. In addition to acting as producer and line producer on several shorts and documentaries, including the notable PBS/BBC broadcast docudrama Murder at Harvard, Geller also produced the Sundance Institute supported, independent feature entitled Stay Until Tomorrow. Written and directed by Providence, RI-native Laura Colella, the film was shot in four weeks on location in Providence, RI in the summer of 2002 and is currently being screened on the film festival circuit.
Geller’s most ambitious production to date wrapped 25 days shooting on location in the mountains of western Pennsylvania this past summer. The four-hour mini-series on the French and Indian War, entitled The War That Made America, is slated to air on PBS in the fall of 2005.
Most recently, she has teamed up with husband/director Peary to produce the documentary feature FOR THE LOVE OF MOVIES: THE STORY OF AMERICAN FILM CRITICISM.
