LA Film Festival: Advice and Insight From This Year’s Filmmakers

LA Film Festival: Advice and Insight From This Year's Filmmakers

With the 20th LA Film Festival now underway until June 19, Indiewire is hosting the “How I Shot That (LAFF Edition)” series. Every day up until the end of the festival, the series will spotlight a filmmaker with a film screening at the event. In some cases, the project’s cinematographer will chime in. In self-penned questionnaires, we asked the talent to discuss the most difficult scene they had to shoot and share whatever advice they had for up-and-coming filmmakers.

Below are links to the profiles. We’ll keep updating this page up until the end of the festival.
