Joined IFP today

Something that I've been wanting to do for a while is joining Independent Feature Project (IFP) - an organization that I first heard about in 1991 - the year I decided to become a filmmaker. Now that I am a member, looking forward to getting to know IFP better & participating in that community of filmmakers. From IFP's About page:

"What IFP does
IFP knows where independent film is coming from, helped it get to where it is today, and has the experience and programs to advance its future.

IFP fosters the development of 200 feature and documentary films a year through Independent Film Week™, the Independent Filmmaker Labs™ and other activities.

IFP offers education in the art, technology and business of independent filmmaking through workshops, seminars, conferences, mentorships and Filmmaker Magazine™, the premier publication in the field.

IFP builds the audience for independent films by showcasing them in collaboration with other cultural institutions and celebrating them with the Gotham Awards™, the first honors of the film awards season.

IFP champions the work and advocates the interests of a network of 10,000 members in New York City and throughout the world.

In addition, IFP conducts special programs to promote racial, ethnic, religious, ideological, gender and sexual diversity. This, after all, is what independent film is all about: expanding people's points of view by exposing them to different ones."

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
