246 - Leslie Raymond - Ann Arbor Film Festival Executive Director - Pushing The Film Medium Into The Experimental

Hello, Indie Film Creatives! 

In this episode, we have a conversation with Ann Arbor Film Festival Executive Director Leslie Raymond. We talk about what it takes to push the film medium beyond the status quo, balancing a two artist relationship, the 60th anniversary of the Ann Arbor Film Festival (coming in March), working past the unsexy parts of the film business to reach your goals and her experiences with Ken Burns and Michael Moore as advisory Board members of the Ann Arbor Film Festival. Enjoy!
