This month we will welcome a local director as our special guest speaker. His recent short documentary has seen great success in the festival circuit, winning the Grand Jury prizes at SIFF and Tribeca as well as the Special Jury award at SXSW. He will share his recent experiences in the festival scene including an inside perspective on what the jury is looking for and how the festival circuit can help a filmmaker achieve their goals. We will also hear about the inspiration and process of piecing together this character driven historic short film. As always feel free to bring a favorite beverage or snack and come prepared to engage in this intimate evening. P.S. You may have noticed that I did not disclose his name, This is due to a special request by the director. E-mail me if you'd like more information.
