'The Handmaid's Tale' Backlash & Is Tribeca Secretly a Doc Fest? [PODCAST]

Indie Film Weekly 050417
This episode of Indie Film Weekly asks whether the Tribeca Film Festival has a secret identity, and talks about why everyone is talking about 'The Handmaid's Tale.'

In this special festival episode, co-hosts Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord share tales and trivia from our on-the-ground coverage of New York City's Tribeca Film Festival, including fest acquisitions, awards, dystopian premonitions, plant musicians, and the most memorable festival films to look out for. We also discuss recent news outside of the festival bubble, including a major update on the Writers Guild of America negotiations and a labor strike at New York camera stalwart B&H photo.

As always, the show also brings news you can use about upcoming grant and festival deadlines, this week’s indie film releases, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
