A vibrant piece of the SWIFF experience is getting up close and personal with the creatives that worked hard to bring these films to screen – and bring a story to life. Attending a Q&A after a film screening is a great way to gain insight on the creative processes behind these films from directors, actors, producers and more – and a favourite past time for SWIFF audiences.
