In this episode of Indie Film Weekly, we join the great Cannes v. Netflix debate and preview the Tribeca Film Festival.
This week, Erik Luers, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss whether independent filmmakers ultimately pay the price in the ongoing war between Netflix and the Cannes Film Festival. We also preview the Tribeca Film Festival, which we will be covering in depth over the next two weeks, and say a sad goodbye to influential film director Milos Forman, who passed away last Friday.
Charles Haine joins us for gear and tech news, wherein he recaps the best new filmmaking toys and tools that our team discovered over four days at America’s biggest broadcasting expo, NAB. Charles also answers an Ask No Film School question about how to put together a showreel for sound design.
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.
