Has Tribeca Become New York’s Best Fest for Indie Filmmakers? [PODCAST]
This episode of Indie Film Weekly asks: should indies be aiming for a Tribeca premiere?
Jon Fusco, Erik Luers, and yours truly, Liz Nord share all the news, films, projects, and directors you need to know about from our on-the-ground coverage of the Tribeca Film Festival, and debate Tribeca’s importance for indie filmmakers. Charles Haine joins us for gear news, including the lighting that was designed for Michael Haneke and is now available to you. Charles also answers an Ask No Film School question about whether or not you really need to shoot at 60fps for broadcast production.
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.
