Co-hosts Jon Fusco, Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss one of the most hotly debated No Film School posts from this past week, along with what the annual Newfronts advertising presentations can tell you about where to pitch or sell your films, the closure of Facebook's VR production wing Oculus Story Studios, and whether or not other movie awards should follow in MTV's footsteps by eliminating gender-specific acting awards categories.

Charles Haine joins us to report on the latest filmmaking tools, including a new wireless light meter that might change the way you evaluate a scene. Charles also answers an Ask No Film School question about the necessity of director's viewfinders.

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