nathaniel-afiaThe opera ain’t over even after the WIF Lady sings.  The Women In Film Foundation Film Finishing Fund (FFF) takes great pride in the success of our grantees.  Here is the fifth interview of the 2014 series.  We’ve revisited some of our past winners to discuss the life of an independent filmmaker in today’s digital world and to see what winning a grant meant for their film and for them.

This week we talk with Afia Nathaniel , the writer/director/producer of Dukhtar which was part of our 2013 FFF Grant Cycle.  Producer and WIFF Trustee, Cathleen Summers conducted the interview.
