NFF Coffee

90 min.


Sunday, Nov. 13 at 11:00am

As part of the New Filmmakers Forum (NFF), SLIFF holds a conversation with the five participating directors: Thane Economou (“The Wedding Party”), Erica Fae (“To Keep the Light”), Christina Kallas (“42 Seconds of Happiness”), William Lu (“Comfort”), and Alicia Slimmer (“Creedmoria”). The event is hosted by Andrea Sporcic Klund, the Film Office specialist at the Missouri Division of Tourism, who leads the discussion of both the directors’ five films — which screen Nov. 11-12 at the Tivoli — and general issues related to American-independent filmmaking. As an added treat, complimentary coffee and pastries are offered.
