Chicago – Sarah Polley’s brilliant “Stories We Tell” was the opening night film of the 2013 Chicago Critics Film Festival and the writer/director/actress sat down with HollywoodChicago.com to discuss the very personal documentary about her family history. It opens next Friday, May 17, 2013. Come back next week for a full review of the best film of the year to date.
Hollywoodchicago.Com: How important are film festivals to a smaller movie like this one looking to get exposure and build buzz?
Sarah Polley: They’re everything to a movie like this. Without film festivals, a movie like this doesn’t ever find an audience. Hugely important not just as to getting a movie to an audience but the motivation to make films like this one. To be able to go to places where there’s communities of people that actually care about and talk about smaller films — it’s motivating. »
