Read NEW Filmmaking and Director Interviews

Read the best of NEW Interviews from filmmakers about filmmaking: https://matthewtoffolo.com/category/film-director/
Interview with Filmmaker Michelle Brand (A SMALL VOICE)
At the beginning, I was really nervous. But throughout hearing the audience talking about my film, I had to smile. It really moved me to hear people discuss the film, their thoughts and feelings, and it was very touching.
Interview with Filmmaker Leon Williams (HOWELL)
I found it surreal at first. It’s pretty cool aeeing reactions from people so far away enjoying and responding so positively to our little Welsh short film. It’s heartwarming to see such feedback and highly rewarding to hear the laughs.
Interview with Filmmaker Veronique Vanblaere (BOTTOMLESS)
I got to be a fly on the wall. Seeing and hearing people talking about my film while I could not be there was not only a “voyeuristic” treat, but provided fantastic constructive feedback on my work. I do not know of a festival that provides this type of experience for their filmmakers.
Interview with Filmmaker Oscar Lewis (1916)
I was very touched. I’m not sure how to properly express this, but what I appreciated above all else is the fact that it was understood – I mean really understood – more so than anything anyone had said about it before or since. I made this film because I wanted to explain how you often don’t realise when something life changing is happening. And that memory is fragmented and imperfect like a ‘bad flick book’. I thought that was a very good observation. The fact that people openly said they were moved by this film really meant a lot, I don’t have any affiliation with WWI (obviously), but I know what it’s like to feel loss as a child. The farewell which you never dreamt meant goodbye.
Interview with Filmmaker Alex Giannoulis (LUCY)
I never hide my feelings so I ll be blunt: I was very happy to see both how the people were moved and most importantly that they all got the main idea of the film, however, each one of them from his own point of view. Having many points of view means the film is multidimensional and this is the best reward for us. This was an overall very interesting experience.
Interview with Filmmaker Jane Eakin (101 CUPCAKES)
I was pleased that audience members followed the story and were able to relate it to their own experiences. It was also good to hear areas that could be improved.
Interview with Filmmaker Jonathan Brooks (GHOSTBOY)
It was great to see an audience from a different country express their opinions on Ghostboy, they understood the theme and metaphor behind the characters well.
