Picture Lock Radio: Ep. 113- Patrick Shepherd of CIFF & Director Sara Zandieh
Happy Friday folks! Filmmakers be sure to get your films in to the DC Black Film Festival as we’re still in the regular call for entries period until the end of this month. I can tell you first hand that you’ll want to be a part of this year’s showcase and we’re cooking up some great stuff for you!
Today on the show I’m talking with Patrick Shepherd, the Associate Director of the Cleveland International Film Festival about what we can expect to see at this year’s festival. The fest takes place March 27th through April 7th and I have a feeling you’ll want to put it on your radar after this interview. I also talk with Sara Zandieh, writer/director of Simple Wedding. We talk about how her mixed heritage influences the films she makes and how it makes a universal impact for film viewers. Fun fact: I recorded with Sara and Patrick at least a month a part and her film will be playing at CIFF. So you’re getting a double preview!
