  1. This Week’s Absolute Must Read is Clint Enns’ extremely helpful guide for filmmakers submitting to film festivals, including tips on figuring out the essentials to put into your information packet and how to figure out which festivals are good for your film. Clint’s work screens in a ton of festivals, so the man knows what he’s talking about.
  2. This Week’s Absolute Must Listen is the Cinemad Podcast #7 in which journalist Mike Plante interviews two very fine fellows: Ed Halter and Thomas Beard of the Brooklyn-based microcinema, Light Industry.
