Hello! My name is Johnathan Kindall and I'm a communications specialist with a love for film and the arts. I was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee. I am currently displaced there by the pandemic, but I recently graduated from Boston University's College of Communication, where I studied journalism and film studies.
This spring, I worked with the Boston Jewish Film Festival, where I was as a Festival Administration and Research Intern. I also worked for TeenLife Media, where I maintained and produced content for a number of social media channels.
I am seeking employment opportunities in communications, education, film, and the arts. I hope to one day continue my film studies education at a graduate level as well.
Last year, I worked in the press office of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, one of the premier music and arts organizations in the country. I worked intimately with the BSO's public relations team, managing contact with the press, copy-editing releases and performing a whole host of other administrative and technical tasks, all while operating under one of the most recognizable musical brands in the world.
In the past, I have also written for The Daily Free Press, the independent student newspaper at Boston University, as well as The Bay State Banner, another local paper. In my time as a journalist, I covered the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC, the Roxbury International Film Festival in Boston, and a number of other local events. That work, as well as content that I produced for the games and entertainment blog Groundpunch, can be found elsewhere on this site.
Last spring, I published a research-intensive project on the history of the single-screen movie theater in Roxbury, Massachusetts. It can be found here. An essay I wrote in the wake of coronavirus pandemic is also available to read.
Options for contact and social links can be found below. You can also follow me on Letterboxd, a film logging social network, to keep up with what I'm watching and for more casual reviews. Thanks for reading!
