Introducing Steve James
In the documentary world, Steve James hardly needs an introduction, but introduce him is exactly what I got to do at the wonderful Camden International Film Festival! I led a Q&A with the Hoop Dreams director after a sold-out screening of his latest film, the Oscar-nominated Abacus.
I also recorded a couple of fantastically useful podcasts at the festival. Check them out:
(Guests: Sierra Pettengill, The Reagan Show - Sabaah Folayan, Whose Streets? - Jeff Unay, The Cage Fighter)
Pitching Do's and Don'ts: How to Get Your Film Funded (Guests: Molly O’Brien, Chief Business Development Officer of Fork Films - Daniel Chalfen, Co-founder of Naked Edge Films - Jose Rodriguez, Director of Documentary Programs at the Tribeca Film Institute)
And if you ever find yourself looking for a fall getaway, I highly recommend CIFF - a beautiful celebration of film in a beautiful place.
