The Fall 2022 CMBA Blogathon: Movies are Murder!

The leaves are starting to turn and the weather is cooling off, so you know what that means -- it's time for the CMBA Fall Blogathon! This year's topic is "Movies are Murder." Topics can be on anything related to murder in film, whether they're dramas or comedies, silents or talkies, or hailing from the U.S. or a foreign shore. There’s a wide-open field of homicidal happenings to explore! 

The blogathon, for CMBA members only, will run November 7th through November 11th. To promote the blogathon on your blog, take your pick from any of the banners below.

Our participants to date are also listed below. If you haven’t yet picked a topic, there’s still time to join in the deadly fun! Just email the CMBA Board ( with your topic choice, blog name, and preference date for posting, if any.

We look forward to another great blogathon!
