I juggle a lot of hats in this inspiring, and often bewildering, game we call documentary. Program Director at the LEF Foundation is one of them. Programmer at The DocYard is another. And a third, of which I am very proud, is Producer of the non-fiction feature film (currently in post-production) Street Fighting Man. It was with this last hat on that I set off to New York for Independent Film Week, last week.

I wanted to learn a little bit about how they put together the show and what it's like to work at a place where there's a shiny wall of Emmy and Peabody awards adjoining the break room.
