In this episode of Indie Film Weekly, we preview the best that Sundance 2017 has to offer, and reveal why RED's Helium 8K is even better than we thought.
Co-hosts Jon Fusco, Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss the biggest festival buzz, and the films and filmmakers we're most excited to cover as we head to Park City, Utah, to bring you news and interviews from the Sundance Film Festival. We also discuss new filmmaker-friendly divisions at Vice and NatGeo, the Cinema Eye Honors results, and the too-short life of the Lily drone. In Ask No Film School, we advise on how to choose your next documentary camera. As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, 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.
