Join host Beth Accomando for a FREE virtual relaunch of the popular Cinema Junkie podcast - just in time for the summer movie season.

KPBS Cinema Junkie Podcast is back from quarantine break and we recently celebrated with a Twitch party where guests shared their cinematic addictions. If you missed the live party on Twitch, here's your chance to see Beth in action with her noted guests, sharing their cinematic additions.

This event is FREE. All are welcome.

Watch this lively discussion about why all of us are addicted to film. Cinema Junkie host Beth Accomando will be on the YouTube premiere to answer questions or just talk about movies in the chat.

DJ and neuroscientist Eric Leonardis remixes Cinema Junkie interviews of David Cronenberg, David Lynch, Wes Craven, Bruce Campbell and Ian McKellen to set the mood for the party.

Additional guests include Twisted Twins Jen and Sylvia Soska, directors of "American Mary"; Nora Fiore, the Nitrate Diva; from Brighton, England Cinebra; Horrible Imaginings Film Festival founder Miguel Rodriguez; Moviewallas' Yazdi Pithavala; Digital Gym Cinema's Moises Esparza; and Comic-Con International's David Glanzer.

There is also a sneak peek of the new UC San Diego building at Market and Park where Digital Gym Cinema will be making its new home.

The Cinema Junkie podcast is your mainline film 24/7. This film and entertainment series is run by KPBS Film Critic Beth Accomando. So if you need a film fix, want to hear what filmmakers have to say about their work, or just want to know what's worth seeing this weekend, then you've come to the right place. Available at or wherever you get your podcasts.
