Making an independent film is no easy task. It is truly a never-ending process, one that takes you through the highest of highs and sometimes the lowest of lows. The only way to make it through, alive (and a little sane) is with the helping hand of friends, family, and sometimes the kindness of strangers. For us, our kind stranger was the San Francisco Film Society, who over the course of time has become a very close friend.
We caught up with Destin Daniel Cretton, who is riding high from his recent sweep at SXSW -- his world premiere of Short Term 12 won both 2013 Grand Jury Award and the Audience Award for Narrative Feature competition! Short Term 12 was a 2012 SFFS/KRF Filmmaking Grant winner for postproduction. The video features an insightful interview with Destin about his filmmaking background and creative process, and includes behind-the-scenes footage from the film!
