With Year 4 at IndieWorks, we've transitioned away from our one on one Insider Series and have started shooting and sharing the Q&A's from our screenings so that all filmmakers and their work get highlighted. Please note there are some spoilers. Feel free to look for an opportunity to catch the films at a festival or computer screen near you & then come back to watch! congestedcat.com/indieworks/
