Veteran movie critic Elvis Mitchell has been named curator of the new weekly film series that will be staged by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Film Independent. The organizations announced Mitchell's appointment Thursday morning, with LACMA director Michael Govan telling 24 Frames that he and other executives were "very impressed with [Mitchell's] approach to cross genres, [with] using the museum as a site and his interest in historic film." Govan also called Mitchell "agile, someone who sets no traditional mold." Mitchell will relocate to Los Angeles for the position, which is full-time. He will start in July, with the first programming scheduled to screen in the fall.

The Treatment host who was originally announced to host Roger Ebert's remodeling of At The Movies, but ended up not having the job, and later let go from his gig as co-chief film critic at Movieline magazine after just about 3 months on the job, is now heading west to take on a new challenge.

Good luck Mr Mitchell...
