At the top of the show, co-hosts Jon FuscoEmily Buder and yours truly, Liz Nord, cover some ways in which the indie film world is tackling the serious news headlines around race and violence in America. We also hear from director Jeff Nichols about his preference for shooting on film, debate Michael Shannon’s recent complaints about underpaid indie actors, and discuss The New York Times' recent coverage of documentary film funding. As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, this week’s indie film releases, our Ask No Film School segment, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
