This week's guest on The Annapolis Podcast is Patti White. Patti is the Co-Founder and Festival Director of The Annapolis Film Festival. Patti previously produced for the CBS program 60 Minutes and she is currently a principal for her production company called Filmsters LLC. We talk about how the film festival started (in the backroom of the 49 West Coffeehouse), what to expect from this year's film festival (March 29 - April 3, 2016) and the future of the festival. We delve into the unique challenges of starting a film festival in Annapolis and how the Annapolis Film Festival is "Filmmaker Friendly" and "Audience Friendly". We talk about how the experience and escapism of going to the movies will never go away and how the whole experience of going to the movies is becoming more digital.
