Meet the moderators

Each week, filmmakers will be interviewed by moderators who have previously presented at the Festival. Moderators include university-level film professors, producers, directors and an on-air guest host of Turner Classic Movies.

They’ll discuss how the filmmakers have worked and found opportunities during the pandemic; other projects of the filmmakers, either in production or under consideration; and memorable moments from the making of the selected films.
