The Hudson Valley Programmer's Group is dedicated to creating, curating and administering a touring road show program that brings internationally renowned filmmakers and artists to the region, and providing them with the opportunity to exhibit their work and interact with the community.
Filmmakers introduce their work, and speak at length about the ideas behind their films, and describe their experiences making the films, as well as their experiences within the film industry. An in-depth audience question-and-answer session follows each screening.
