Joseph McBride
Description:   For nearly thirty years, Joseph McBride has been a remarkably perceptive writer about American film and film history, writing groundbreaking studies on directors such as Orson Welles, John Ford, and Howard Hawks, as well as the highly acclaimed biography Frank Capra: The Catastrophe of Success.

Mr. McBride is a regular moderator of the festival.

------
Professor McBride, who has taught at SFSU since 2002, has written or edited sixteen books. They include the critically acclaimed biographies Frank Capra: The Catastrophe of Success, Steven Spielberg: A Biography, and Searching for John Ford; three books on Orson Welles; and the Howard Hawks interview book Hawks on Hawks. In 2012, McBride’s book Writing in Pictures: Screenwriting Made (Mostly) Painless will be published by Vintage Books (New York) and Faber and Faber (London). Many of his books have been published in foreign editions; the French edition of Searching for John Ford, A la recherche de John Ford, won an award in 2008 from the French film critics’ association as Best Foreign Film Book of the Year.

Mr. McBride was a reporter, reviewer, and columnist for Daily Variety in Hollywood for many years. His screenwriting credits include co-writing the cult classic punk rock musical Rock ’n’ Roll High School and five American Film Institute Life Achievement Award specials on CBS-TV. He has received a Writers Guild of America Award, four other WGA Award nominations, two Emmy Award nominations, and a Canadian Film Awards nomination. He spent six years acting for Welles as a film critic in the still-unfinished film The Other Side of the Wind, for which he wrote his part with the director.
