S7E4: Guy Lavallee of NorthwestFest

This episode we’re talking with Guy Lavallee, festival director of NorthwestFest, is Edmonton’s documentary and nonfiction film festival, and the oldest documentary festival in Canada. We cover how NorthwestFest is weathering the new world of online festivals, and about the history of the society, too. We commiserate on how volunteer roles have evaporated amid the pandemic, how certain things work really well online, and of course about the films at this year’s NorthwestFest, which runs May 6 to 16 and is viewable all across Alberta.
I Don’t Get It is part of the Alberta Podcast Network: Locally grown, community supported.
