As has been the case for several years now, Indiewire is the place to get to known the AFI Fest filmmakers ahead of the annual festival in Los Angeles. Over the next few days, we'll be posting the 2012 batch of filmmaker profiles leading up to the launch of this year's edition on November 1.
Indiewire invited directors with films in the AFI Fest's Breakthrough, New Auteurs and Young Americans sections to take part by submitting responses to a series of questions in their own words. The festival runs November 1 - 8.
Keep checking HERE every day up to the kickoff date of the event to check out the latest profiles.
