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 am currently enrolled as a senior at Boston University's College of Communication, where I study journalism and film studies.
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.
This spring I am interning with the Boston Jewish Film Festival, and, after graduation, I am seeking employment opportunities in the film industry, particularly in the northeast festival circuit. I hope to one day continue my film studies education at a graduate level as well.
In the past, I have 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, the Roxbury International Film Festival, and a number of other Boston events. That work, as well as content that I produced for the games and entertainment blog Groundpunch, can be found on this site.
Last year I published a research-intensive project on the history of the classic, one-screen community movie theater in Roxbury, Massachusetts. It can be found here.
Some of my favorite films include The Princess Bride, The Blues Brothers, and Ladybird. Follow me on Letterboxd, a social, film logging website, to keep up with what I'm watching and for more casual reviews. I'm also a big fan of musical theater and am usually involved in any number of collegiate level productions in my free time, whether in technical, producing or acting positions.
