    Nicholas Snow presents exclusive audio of a Q&A with Citizenfour Director Laura Poitras, which took place as part of the Talking Pictures program at the 2015 Palm Springs International Film Festival.  As Leaksource reported and as millions around the world witnessed, Laura Poitras "won an Academy Award for her documentary Citizenfour, an inside look at National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden.  The film, which has been hailed as a real-life thriller, chronicles Snowden’s effort to securely contact Poitras and Glenn Greenwald in 2013 and meet them in Hong Kong, where Poitras filmed Snowden discussing the thousands of classified NSA documents he was leaking to them, and his motives for doing so. The film takes its title from thepseudonym Snowden used when he contacted Poitras in encrypted emails that were revealed in her documentary."

    Queer Talk: Taking a look at Gold Star (short film) by director Karla Legaspy

    in LGBT

    This film addresses the need to bring awareness of LGBTQ children and youth within Latino American communities. It deals with homophobia from a yet unavailable perspective in our communities: that of a young, Latina girl. Films addressing homophobia often center teenagers or adults as protagonist, but the experiences of LGBTQ children remain invisible. The film provides young girls with artistic options in which to see themselves reflected. By focusing the film on precocious and precious children, we hope it provides a space for us as Latino Americans to teach tolerance and acceptance of LGBTQ children and adults. Ultimately, it is a story of dreams, hopes and friendship.


    This film deals with themes of identity, coming out, anti-bullying, activism and friendship. What makes this film very special is that all of the characters are Chicana females.  "I am committed to casting all Xicana actors and having as many women in leadership and creative roles behind the scenes." - Karla Legaspy

    Author and Film Director William Dickerson

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview William Dickerson.


    William Dickerson is a writer and director whose debut feature film, "Detour," was hailed as an “underground hit” by The Village Voice, an “emotional and psychological roller-coaster ride” by The Examiner, and nothing short of “authentic” by The New York Times. He self-released his metafictional satire, "The Mirror," which opened YoFi Fest’s inaugural film festival in 2013 and he alsoe recently completed his third feature film, "Don’t Look Back," for MarVista Entertainment. His award-winning work has been recognized by film festivals across the country. His first book, "No Alternative," was declared, “a sympathetic coming-of-age story deeply embedded in ‘90s music” by Kirkus Reviews. He currently serves on AFI’s Alumni Executive Board and is a Faculty Member at the New York Film Academy.

    Based on his challenges while making his debut “microbudget” film, Detour, Dickerson walks the reader through every aspect of making a film in Hollywood. From style direction to financial obstacles, it’s a detailed guide of the experiences of up and coming filmmakers in Los Angeles. 

    Kirkus Reviews said Detour: Hollywood is “A breezy guide that takes readers inside the sometimes-hair-raising world of do-it-yourself filmmaking, capturing its many frustrations and challenges.”
