Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly are the poster children for the new generation of entrepreneurial independent filmmakers.

One of my favorite scenes in The 40 Year Old Virgin (yes, I have a favorite scene from The 40 Year Old Virgin) is when Steve Carell, after arguing with his girlfriend, flees her apartment and rides his bike home at night with traffic backed up behind him. Horns honk loudly, demanding he get out of the way. Shedding tears from the fight, Steve rides ahead, waves his arm to the angry drivers, shouts, “Go around! Go around!” This simultaneously hilarious and emotional scene describes my relationship with social media.

I love Maine. As you cross the border into this fair state, you see the sign “The Way Life Should Be” and you learn in just moments from the fiery hills and the salty fresh air that it’s true, this is the way life should be. I am nothing but grateful that the Camden International Film Festival (CIFF) gives me an excuse every year to get up there. CIFF is an amazing festival celebrating the best, brightest, and newest ideas in nonfiction cinema, and it keeps getting better every year.
