Following our chat with screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher last week on his involvement with the film competition Bombay Sapphire are running this year (for more info click here) we spoke to one of the other creative forces behind the project, the director of the Tribeca Film Festival, Nancy Schafer.

What struck me about the involvement of both Fletcher and Schafer is the different qualities and experiences they bring. The premise is that writers and directors are asked to interpret a script written by Fletcher and to pitch their ideas to the panel. Coming from the background Schafer does, as well as being a champion of independent film, I wanted to find out what she was looking in the submissions, and if audiences are finding that there is life beyond the multiplex.

HeyUGuys – Can you tell us about your involvement in the Imagination series and can you tell us how you got involved in it? »
