"The main rule is: making the movie is a “work in progress” till the last day — never stop digging to find the most valuable form or truth."
"I discovered that I really really want to become a father!"
Our exclusive interview with Rajendra Roy, Laurence Kardish and Jytte Jensen of the festival's Selection Committee has some great tidbits from ND/NF's 40-year history and will point you in the direction of some not-to-be-missed films from this year's lineup!
"The first time we rehearsed, I saw all these people in costumes shouting and spitting on the girl. Reality and fiction became confused. The whole day was very hard."
"Making films is physical work, and there is absolutely no guarantee that the end result will be any good, no matter how hard you and your friends try."
At times crude, violent and disorientating, "Khrustalyov" is also one of the few indisputable masterpieces of world cinema completed in the last 40 years, taking us to the limits of the political horrors of the last century
On Tuesday's show, director Adam Leon and the stars of Narrative Feature Grand Prize winner (and official ND/NF selection!) "Gimme the Loot" sat down to discuss their film. Other guests included filmmakers from "Starlet," "Tchoutipoulas," "$ellebrity," plus another edition of our critics roundtable.
