New Filmmakers Forum
The New Filmmakers Forum (NFF), a juried competition of works by first-time feature filmmakers, is an annual highlight of SLIFF. The featured films this year are “Aram, Aram,” “Four Way Stop,” “Heaven’s Floor,” “It Had to Be You,” and “Love Land.” The filmmakers accompany the screenings at the Tivoli from Nov. 13-14, and they participate in a roundtable discussion at the free NFF Coffee on Nov. 15 at KDHX. The screenings and coffee are hosted by the Missouri Film Office’s Andrea Sporcic. The NFF Emerging Filmmaker Award – nicknamed the Bobbie in honor of the late Bobbie Lautenschlager, NFF’s longtime curator – is presented at SLIFF’s Closing-Night Party at Urban Chestnut’s Grove Brewery & Bierhall. See the program listings for full details on individual films.
