Howard (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 The University of Colorado 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 a film critic for both print and for radio. He is married to novelist Janis Hallowell and has a daughter.
