Independent film lovers will have a special chance to sit in on interviews with three outstanding filmmakers at this year’s Beloit International Film Festival. Director’s Cut, Wisconsin Public Television’s popular focus on independent film, filmmakers, and creative thinking, will make its first remote sojourn to a film festival this year when it comes to BIFF on Sunday, Feb. 20.
The program, which introduces narrative and documentary films made by indie directors, will record three programs in high definition at the Eclipse Center before a 200-member live audience. Host Charles Monroe-Kane will talk with Justin Eugene Evans, creator of the feature A Lonely Place for Dying, Willem Alkema, director of the Netherlands documentary about Sly Stone, Coming Back For More, and Jules Hart, director of the Canadian documentary about women seeking to be ordained in the Roman Catholic church, Pink Smoke Over the Vatican.
Admission to the live tapings is free; however, tickets are required. A limited number of tickets are available at www.beloitfilmfest.org.
