Welcome to the170! The name’s Dan Quitério, Executive Editor/Film Editor of LimitéMagazine.com and screenwriter. Above all, I’m a film snob, and I’ve launched this blog as a means of expressing my interests and opinions, as well as providing a platform to discuss the state of cinema—both contemporary and classic. Among the features I’m most excited about is the “Anatomy of a Short Film” page, which will track my progress as I develop my latest short film through all stages of production. My hope with this section is to both share and gain some insights throughout the challenging and rewarding process.
The name “the170″ is derived from a list of 170 films I culled in 2003 from a variety of sources, among them American Film Institute’s original “100 Years … 100 Movies” list. My goal was to watch all 170 films by my 30th birthday—a goal that I reached.
