[5 mins. 15 secs.] First up, the programming team behind the 2018 Brooklyn Film Festival, documentary programmer Julie Bridgeham and narrative programmer Jason Stefaniak. The festival, now in its 21st season, runs from June 1st through the 10th. Check out the website for remaining screenings, this weekend’s BFF Exchange and more.
[27 mins. 15 secs.] Then we welcome back to the podcast Rumur Films‘ filmmaker Michael Galinsky back for his 4th visit to the podcast. This time he’s joined by David Beilinson, who along with Michael and co-director —and wife— Suki Hawley, made their current documentary, Working in Protest, which had two screenings at the Brooklyn Film Festival earlier this week. We’ll keep listeners apprised on how they can keep up with the film going forward.
