GFA to be featured at the Chronos Film Fest!
Not only will the film be featured during the 3 day festival but I will also be there taking part in a director’s Q&A as well as panel discussions with other talented filmmakers and audio engineers. The list of featured guests is truly astonishing. Please take the time to go through and read all of these amazing bios. As a young filmmaker, a lot of these people have been inspirational for me as I have learned from the vast amount of knowledge they share online.
The festival is November 3rd-5th.
