A Selfie-Free Cannes Kicks Off & Can Your Short Really Be a Calling Card? [PODCAST]
This episode of Indie Film Weekly questions whether Netflix and the cinephiles of France are on the road to kiss and make up.
Jon Fusco, Erik Luers, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss the opening of the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival and how Netlifx is playing nice—or are they? We also cover the first results of the Academy’s ethics enforcements, and say a sad goodbye to prolific editor of ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ and over 50 more films, Anne V. Coates. Jon also answers an Ask No Film School question about whether or not a short film should be used as an industry “calling card.” Charles Haine joins us for gear news, including a hot take on why 8K is a good thing.
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.
