Why Your Film Isn't Getting into Festivals & Tips From a Guerrilla Filmmaking Legend [PODCAST]

IFW 092117
This episode of Indie Film Weekly answers one of directors' most plaguing questions.

Jon Fusco and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss why the Emmys are actually worth noticing this year and what we should make of all the hubbub around Darren Aronofsky’s latest film, mother!. We also share wrap-ups from the Toronto and Camden International Film Festivals, including the movie made with 10,000 hours of surveillance footage. In Ask No Film School, we answer the perennial question of why your film isn’t getting into festivals. As always, the show also brings news you can use about new 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.

Listen to the episode by streaming or downloading from the embedded player above, or find on iTunes here.
