The annual South By Southwest film, music and tech experience opened today in Austin, TX today with some tough talk for the indie minded.
Every day at this year's Sundance Film Festival, Eugene Hernandez hosted a live podcast from the KPCW studios in Park City, UT, chatting with the filmmakers, industry and insiders with the latest buzz from the 2012 event. Catch up with each daily show.
Tuesday's show began with a discussion of the legacy of indie film champion Bingham Ray with David Dorius and Christine Vachon, followed by chats with Sundance directors Craig Zobel ("Compliance") and David and Nathan Zellner ("Kid Thing") and a very special appearance by comic book icon Stan Lee!
Day four of our Sundance podcast saw guests John Cooper and Trevor Groth, the festival's Director and Director of Programming, respectively; Joe Berlinger, director of "Under African Skies;" Andrea Arnold, director of "Wuthering Heights;" and Matt Dentler of Cinetic Media / Film Buff.
Monday's guests included a critics roundtable made up of Peter Debruge of Variety, Greg Elllwood of HitFix, and Logan Hill of GQ, directors and producers of Sundance films "Shut Up and Play the Hits" and "Finding North," as well as Janet Pierson of SXSW Festival.
