Every year, we are delighted to welcome filmmakers and special guests from around the world to attend with their work. These esteemed guests, who have ranged from Sydney Pollack to Albert Maysles to Roger Ross Williams and Jasmine Dellal, bring the audience a step closer to their works, answering questions at post-screening Q&As, offering insights on their inspiration and process, and socializing with other festival guests at our events.
