Every year Filmmaker Magazine publishes the “25 New Faces of Independent Film.” For the third year in a row The Grand Cinema will host 20 of the new reigning leaders in filmmaking from Aug. 17-23. Meet directors, animators, producers, writers and editors after screenings of their own work. They’ll answer your questions and explain their creative journeys. All the films screened over the weekend will have a Q&A lead by Seattle’s film guru, Warren Etheredge. Click here for a full schedule of festival.
