The International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) has announced its 2011 line-up, which includes A Good Man and The Interrupters. The festival, regularly cited as Europe's premier documentary event, runs November 16-27. This will mark the 7th festival of our 45th anniversary year in which the two films have screened together, and the two will be part of 7 total Kartemquin films screening at IDFA.
Kartemquin was honored with a visit from Haskell Wexler today: check out photos on our Facebook page.
Wexler was in town for the Chicago International Film Festival and visited us to be interviewed by our own living legend, Gordon Quinn, for a feature in the magazine In These Times. He entered the building filming on his own small video camera and proceeded to tour our offices interviewing each of the staff before sitting down with Gordon.
