IndieWire is happy to announce the arrival of the newest addition to our growing network of podcasts.  The Filmmaker Toolkit podcast is a weekly conversation with leading independent creators about the innovative ways the best movies and television shows are getting made.

In this week’s episode, filmmaker Robert Greene discusses why nonfiction filmmaking can be a cinematic form of self-expression and how his Sundance hit “Kate Plays Christine” blurs the lines between fiction and reality.

Listen to full episode above. 

In previous episodes of the podcast, director Ira Sachs stopped by to talk about writing his new film “Little Men” and why he doesn’t rehearse his actors.  While in a podcast dedicated to web series, Kit Williamson breaks down how “The Eastsiders” went from YouTube to Netflix and IndieWire’s digital media critic Jude Dry shares her insights on some of her favorites series.

The Filmmaker Toolkit podcast is available on iTunes, Stitcher, and Soundcloud.  You can subscribe here or via RSS. You can check out the rest IndieWire’s podcasts in iTunes.

The music used in this podcast is from the “Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present” score,  courtesy of composer Nathan Halpern.
