Craig Gainsborough: on producing, and taking responsibility.
Sophie Henderson: on blurring the line between comedy and drama.
Hweiling Ow: the uncensored brain of a filmmaker.
Yamin Tun: on being a filmmaker, which is expensive, rather than, say, a poet, which is not.
Claire van Beek: on exploring the female psyche on-screen.
Cian Elyse White: on storytelling that centres wāhine Māori.
