    Sundance Institute Founder and Director Michelle Satter Predicts the Future of Indie Filmmaking

    There are few people who know the ever-shifting landscape of indie film as well as Michelle Satter. In fact, there may be no other people. Michelle helped found the Sundance Institute's feature film program alongside Robert Redford in 1981. All they've done since then is help build the very identity of indie film, developing and bringing audiences some of the most important voices in cinema. From Tarantino to PTA, Michelle has witnessed it all.

If you listen to 1 filmmaking podcast make it NFS!

I have subscribed to six filmmaking and camera equipment podcasts over the past 3 years and especially enjoy the recent new format hosted by Charles Haines. Found with nofilmschool, I can now listen to a single program and get the latest gear news, learn about what's trending in the industry, and be entertained. I relied on NFS for insight on purchases of cameras, lenses, audio gear and lights. And Charles actually convinced me to NOT spend money now on gear that is not essential. Hosts are talented and include a USC Film School MFA grad who is a film school professor in New York. SUBSCRIBE!

Weird echo

Love the show! Sometimes when Im listening theres a weird echo like a bleed or delay where I can hear the start of a sentence twice? Might wanna look at your effects chain or track alignment

Entertaining and informative every week!

Getting in the habit of listening to the NFS podcast on my way to work has easily made Mondays and Thursdays my favorite days of the week. I love the whole ensemble -- great information and really charming banter. Indie Film Weekly episodes are always my favorite, but I'm really digging Jon's first short series! I'd be happy to see it get bumped up to a 5-parter.
