Howie Movshovitz came to Colorado as a VISTA Volunteer (Volunteers in Service to America -- the domestic Peace Corps) and stayed because he liked it. After receiving two advanced degrees from CU-Boulder in English, he began to veer into film. With Linda Williams, Professor Emeritus in Film at Berkeley, Movshovitz made three short films, eventually wrote and co-produced a 12-part documentary series, "Filmmakers" for Rocky Mountain PBS. Movshovitz is film critic for both print and for radio. He married to novelist Janis Hallowell and has a daughter.
