A good time was had by all at the Impact Hub Philly screening of Alison Bagnall’s THE DISH & THE SPOON. Local filmmakers Mike Dennis, Marlene Patterson and Suzanne Landau were in attendance. The after screening discussion lasted over an hour. AFI classmate Mike Dennis asked Alison what she learned the most from her American Film Institute training. She said how to work with actors. To paraphrase Alison: “People think actors are just being difficult prima-donas, they are not. My job is to protect them while they exist in this bubble of the film. They embody the film [in a way that other members of the crew do not]. Actors need their space [to create credible, complex characters].”
Our next WAVE screening is TANGO MACBETH Wednesday January 21st 6pm. Admission is FREE and we supply the popcorn. Impact Hub Philadelphia is at 1227 N. 4th Street in Northern Liberties, between Girard Avenue and Thompson Street.
