Synopsis: Filmmakers: without them there would be no content… And with them comes lots of complexities. Just like every festival has its own audience, every filmmaker has their own quirks. In the present situation we find ourselves in now is the time to strengthen (or hopefully continue to nurture) the existing exchange between the two entities. Filmmakers can go off radar, ask a million questions you’ve already answered, or be angels and deliver on time and respond to requests without ever needing to nudge. They’re also sitting the other side of the table when it comes to COVID-19 doing its best to disrupt everything.

In the discussion Katie will share some insights into the perspectives of filmmakers from around the world, about the landscape right now including their concerns, as well as what has reassured them. We’ll talk about communication and use of language/verbiage when delivering news, and open the discussion to what festival organizers have found to have worked or lessons learned from this area. Like us, filmmakers are worried about the future and now is the time to be as clear and transparent as possible.
