Film Fest = No Rest


Film Fest squad — including editors Aly Comingore, Michelle Drown, Matt Kettmann, and Jackson Friedman, art director Ben Ciccati, and web producers Mike Gahagan and Nya Burke (plus Ethan Stewart and Charles Donelan, not pictured) — started grinding through films, interviews, and layouts as soon as the lineup was announced January 5. The result: insightful interviews with more than 50 filmmakers, published both at independent.com/sbiff and in the five 12-page Meet the Makers, available at SBIFF’s many venues.
