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 but recently graduated from Boston University's College of Communication. The pandemic temporarily displaced me to my hometown, but I am currently in the process of returning to the Greater Boston Area, where I earned my degree and began my career.
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 with 20,000+ followers.
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 initial wake of coronavirus pandemic is also available to read here.
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!
