This episode of Indie Film Weekly reveals the global impact of one of the year's most insane documentaries.
Jon Fusco, Charles Haine and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss one filmmaker’s major role in Russia’s Olympic doping scandal, the first news from Sundance 2018 and what it might mean for makers of shorts, and the inaugural Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society Awards decision to split best male and female directors into two separate categories. We say goodbye to influential video essay series Every Frame a Painting, and Charles answers an Ask No Film School question about how to deal with brands and logos in your film.
As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, this week’s indie film releases, industry wisdom, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
