Film Critics: Film Festivals
Film festivals mean a lot to independent filmmakers and to the cities and towns that host them.
The pandemic saw a number of festivals cancel, postpone or go virtual in 2020. This year, many are coming back, some in person, others remaining virtual and some adopting a hybrid model. One Kansas City filmmaker talks about how her 2020 effort is doing well at film festivals and the Film Critics explain the role these play in local economies and movie makers' careers. Cynthia and Steve also give us their picks of films now playing to see.
