Welcome to Episode 2 of Indie Film Weekly, our new podcast for busy filmmakers.
This week, we get into the Tribeca Film Festival's announcement of its first slate of films for April's big event; a Wipster and Vimeo integration that helps you collaborate on videos remotely; new opportunities for female filmmakers from heavyweights like Queen Latifah, Catherine Hardwicke, YouTube and the United Nations; how the PBS series Framelines will turn you into a horror film editor; an announcement from the MacArthur Foundation that has shaken the documentary world; and a new wave of indie cinemas opening in New York City.
And, as always, we keep you on top of some of the tech and tool releases, grant and festival deadlines and other important nuggets that you may have missed while you were busy making films (see list below).
