Jon FuscoErik Luers, and yours truly, Liz Nord discuss how BitCoin and the blockchain are revolutionizing the film industry. We also update you on awards season and the Berlin International Film Festival, as well as marvel over Black Panther’s astonishing opening weekend and talk about what it means for indie filmmakers. Charles Haine joins us for gear news, including official details of the Fujifilm X-H1 mirrorless camera. Charles also answers an Ask No Film School question about the difference between still and cinema lenses.

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.
