Self-Employed Happy Hour Podcast: Roberto Appicciafoco, Founder of the Southwest Gay and Lesbian Film Festival We chat with Roberto on the eve of the 13th Annual SWGLFF
Roberto Appicciafoco turned his love for film into a career as a film festival organizer and curator, most notably as the Founder and Festival Director of the Southwest Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (SWGLFF). On the eve of the 13th annual fest, running Oct. 9 to 18 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Roberto joins us in the Pyragraph Studio for our first Self-Employed Happy Hour of the Fall 2015 season! We chat about how he got started in film festivals, the joys of dealing with taxes when you’re self-employed, how SWGLFF fits into the broader circles of film festivals, how emerging filmmakers can up their chances of success on the festival circuit, and a whole lot more.
Host Peri Pakroo is joined by Pyragraph Creative Director Clarke Condé.
