…a very rewarding four days of films!I had the pleasure of moderating six documentaries and one scripted film this year — great treats every one! I want to express my gratitude to the following filmmakers (in the order in which I met them)…
Tim Phillips and Jan Creamer, for LION ARK*
Kori Feener, for HARD WAY HOME
Lee Bidgood and Shara Lange, for BANJO ROMANTIKA
Tony Hale and Jeremy Kaplan, for A WILL FOR THE WOODS
Jeff Reichert and Farihah Zaman, for REMOTE AREA MEDICAL*
Alan Berliner, for FIRST COUSIN ONCE REMOVED*
…and to Macon Blair, the star of BLUE RUIN*.
The films marked with an asterisk have distribution already or, in the case of LION ARK, are being four-walled in theaters, so keep an eye out for them. The other three are absolutely worthy of wider exposure, so I hope you’ll be seeing them soon as well.
My thanks once again to Jody Kielbasa, Wes Harris and Jenny Mays for allowing me to be part of such a spectacular annual event!
