On this special episode of Footcandle Films Alan & Chris decide to brave the sunlight outside the studio and record in a park…in downtown Winston-Salem, NC...which just so happens to be hosting the 15th Annual RiverRun International Film Festival. They kick off things with a review of Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut "Quartet" and then highlight films they've had a chance to see at the festival. As always they close with recommendations of films you might have missed.
