Q&A's are a staple of our screening series. However, since this is our Best of Fest re-screening of films, there will be no Q&A at this event. So check out our Q&A recap videos from the monthly screenings on our site to see these filmmakers discuss their films. And be sure to attend our monthly screenings in the future for more engagement with filmmakers. Tonight will be less focused on discussion and more of a celebration of this year of films and the amazing filmmakers we featured & connected with.
