Meet tomorrow’s filmmakers today. The Discover Film podcast features interviews with the most promising new filmmakers on the festival circuit.  This podcast was born from the Q&A’s after film festival screenings, where filmmakers are limited to discussing projects that take years to produce in 10 minutes or less.  Discover Film allows host Jeff Howard to get to the heart of independent filmmaking.
