I’ve attended many film festivals in my 46 year career as a film programmer and Director of The Ross, but when I discovered the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival, I discovered a gem! The first year that I attended, I got to have dinner with John Waters, and I was hooked. I’ve been going back ever since. I am proud to have The Ross be an official sponsor of the SFIFF.
