Expected to Attend: Director Sandi Tan (11/8 ONLY)

Sundance Directing Award winner Sandi Tan weaves a tale of youthful talent, guerilla filmmaking and a decades-long mystery solved. Tan was obsessed with indie film as a teenager growing up in Singapore. Under the tutelage of a mysterious older mentor, Georges, she filmed her original script, Shirkers, during a summer break, only to have Georges disappear with all of the footage. Part memoir, part mystery, Shirkers brings viewers along on Tan’s journey to self-realization as an artist of original voice and vision. Courtesy of Netflix.
