Co-hosts Jon Fusco, Emily Buder, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss what the Academy Awards can teach us about producing, along with this year’s indie-oriented results from both the Oscars and the Film Independent Spirit Awards, and how Netflix is already vying for next awards season with a Martin Scorsese pic. We also say goodbye to Seijun Suzuki and hear from director Ry Russo-Young about her film Before I Fall, opening in theaters this weekend. Filmmaker and actress Christina Beck (Perfection) joins us for an Ask No Film School about making actors cry. And, as always, we also bring you the latest gear news, 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.
