Canon Finally Makes a Mirrorless Camera & Our 2018 Oscars Preview [PODCAST]
Also in this episode of Indie Film Weekly, will Netflix's content dominance be good for indies?
Jon Fusco, Erik Luers, and yours truly Liz Nord preview the upcoming Academy Awards, ponder whether Netflix’s total dominance of original content is good for indie filmmakers, update you on the latest in the battle for Net Neutrality, and say a sad goodbye to veteran producer Benjamin Melniker.
