On this installment of The PAPER STREET Podcast, hosts Becky Sayers and Shawn Talley discuss the current state of films and festivals, or lack thereof, and the pros and cons of South By Southwest and Amazon partnering to bring SXSW--a version of it, anyway--to the streaming platform. While a great move for consumers, they debate the possible risk and reward it poses for filmmakers who opt into it.
They're joined on the show by Tim Anderson, programming coordinator for the Florida Film Festival, who gives a lot of great info and advice on getting into festivals, and talks about the current and future state of fests and theatrical releases. The hosts also play a round of Not-So-Rapid Fire 15 with Tim, talk up Adam Egypt Mortimer's 2019 film DANIEL ISN'T REAL and the SHUDDER streaming service, plus Becky's Deep Cut Slasher of the Week, and more!
