Chris Clark

Chris Clark (78)

As a lifelong St. Louisan, Chris is very proud of his place in the St. Louis arts scene. He graduated from St. Louis University High School in 1979 and with honors from Webster University in 1985. Drawing upon his background in film studies, mass media and public-event coordination he has been an integral part in many of the organizational and logistical changes that have led to the growth and expanded artistic direction of the St. Louis International Film Festival (SLIFF). His dedicated work is evident in the ever-increasing number of annual film-related events produced by Cinema St. Louis (CSL), including the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase, Classic French Film Festival, SLIFF/Kids, the 48 Hour Film Project, and the LGBT film festival called QFest. This is a dream job for Chris and he plans to keep it indefinitely by living forever. So far, so good. He and his partner of nine years, plus two spoiled and feisty dogs live happily in Maplewood, MO. They hope to be married when Missouri catches up to the rest of the world.

Meet Me in St. Louie, Louie. Meet Me at the Fair

Written by
Fair Saint Louis is coming at you starting tonight in Forest Park. Will it be a glorious kerfuffle of traffic jams and madness? Will the Pope effect keep people away? Could the weather be any nicer for the weekend? Wouldn't it be cool if Harrier jets buzzed the park at…

A different kind of Independence Day

Written by
Summer in the city. That means excessive heat warnings, pork steaks, PrideFest, and the joyful madness that is Fair St. Louis. Today is blissfully cool and tonight will be a downright chilly 57 degrees - in July. Suh-weet! The heat has been here for sure; last week or so was…

I fought the law and the law won

Written by
I like loopholes. Sometimes they get you out of trouble and sometimes they are in integral part of the shoe tying process. I am no stranger to moving violations and have at times relied upon the long, proud history and tradition of  being able to make tickets go away in…

What I did on my Spring vacation

Written by
I perpetually have way more vacation time built up than I can easily use. Around the December holidays I traditionally take a few weeks off to relax and decompress after a ridiculously busy fall. At the end of April I was feeling a bit out of sorts and scheduled some…

The hardest thing in the world

Written by
I love animals. Most of them love me too. Almost anywhere I go people's pets will seek me out at some point to spend some quality time. Dogs are my favorite furry friends, but it's often the shyest of cats that wind up curled up on my lap or chest…

What Neil Degrasse Tyson taught me about road rage

Written by
St. Louis drivers are awful. I am one of them. Agressive, impatient, rude and on the phone. Yep, that's me. I need to be where I want to be now, so please get the f*ck out of my way.  To my credit (and luck) I have never been in a major…

Spring has fully sprung in the STL

Written by
Oh, St. Louis. Every time I start to think you are a horrible and evil place filled with unchecked racism and burning piles of nuclear waste, you do something so wonderfully magical that I fall in love with you all over again. This time it was trees. Flowering trees actually,…
The information that I am about to share in this post will almost certainly lead to my incarceration in some unnamed bottomless pit of a military prison somewhere, but I feel it is my civic and personal duty to share it while I still can. If I suddenly and mysteriously…

St. Louis drivers - there's a new sheriff in town

Written by
You have been warned. I have been on high alert while driving for weeks now and it ain't pretty out there. Spring may have sprung, but this is not free license for bungholery while behind the wheel of a car. A whole new crop of deliberately oblivious drivers are out…
