Yale's film festival is free and open to the general public, and includes Q&As with actors and directors. Here's one highlight - see their website for the full lineup.
Pinches actores (Freakin’ Actors), Mexico 2015
Six friends overcome a series of adversities and challenges as actors. One dreams of being a soap opera star; another puts up with a jealous wife and less than promising roles; a young actress believes in the power of acting as an art form but has to deal with the industry’s sexism; a leading man doesn’t care who he has to step on as he climbs to the top; and a family man’s acting dreams begin to slip away. Then there’s the eccentric Mad who shares these stories and his own in this love letter to acting.
New Haven, CT: Nov. 9 - 13 at Yale University, free and open to the general public.
