Episode 75

The situation is daunting as the world deals with the COVID-19 Corona Virus and the consequences we are enduring. Many industries are being hit hard. The risks for a part of the global population are dire.

Episode 75 of the SBP Podcast Mobile Filmmaking sheds a light on the effects of this situation from the film festivals’ perspective with our special guest, Craig Prater. Mr. Prater is the president of Heartland International Film Festival. He has more than 30 years experience in the film festivals industry. His career with film festivals began as executive director of the Palm Springs International Film Festival.

As an expert in the industry, and a good friend, I called him to discuss the current situation in the industry. There are so many unknowns in this situation that it makes it very hard for film festivals to navigate.

If you are a filmmaker and have have submitted to several film festivals, you may be impacted by the postponements and cancellations.
