EARLY MISTAKES – LIVE!
To open the twentieth edition of Local Sightings, our fine film community will divulge formative foibles in a lively talk show. Combining juicy storytelling, set gossip of yesteryear, cringe-inducing memories, and corresponding film excerpts, “Early Mistakes – Live!” will offer the audience an unvarnished glimpse into the filmmaking process. Filmmakers will tell the firsthand tales of the sometimes painful, frequently comical and nearly always illuminative experiences of the inevitable mess ups along the way to making masterpieces. Featuring Charles Mudede, Jennifer Roth, Megan Griffiths, Sue Corcoran, Amy Benson, Claire Buss, Michael Seiwerath, and SJ Chiro. Come for the tales of face palm fiascos, stay for the legendarily wild after party. **
