The Alexandria Film Festival kicks off this Thursday November 7, 2013. This is the festival's 7th year, and promises to be a good one with great programming and a Skype chat with "Beasts of the Southern Wild" director Benh Zeitlin! I had the opportunity to sit down with Chair of the festival, Patti North, to talk about the festival and film. Check out the interview below!
