ADVENTURES IN PROGRAMMING
Visiting Programmers Panel
SATURDAY JUNE 15 • 4 PM • 90 MIN.

Every year film festival programmers watch thousands of shorts from all over the world to select what plays at their festivals. HIFF’s visiting programmers will screen one of their favourites from their respective festivals and provide a glimpse into the kind of work that is making an impact on the international festival circuit. Guest programmers will be at the screening to introduce the films, discuss the programming process and answer questions about their picks.

Anita Tavakol, Short Cuts Programming Associate
