Meet the Filmmaker: Lyndsay Lack, “Avenue of Hope”

“Avenue of Hope”

Lyndsay_LackQ: Why did you become a filmmaker?

LL: I love making films because it’s one of my favorite ways to communicate ideas.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?

LL: At the EFP, you’ll see “Avenue of Hope,” a short documentary about some of the kids at the Colfax Community Network learning how to make their own news broadcast. The film was created by myself, Katie Cook, Ellie Brown, Kyna Moore, and Kaitlin Krunk during our time together in graduate school at the University of Denver. We’d like to thank our mentors and peers at DU for their support, the Colfax Community Network for the work they do and the integrity with which they do it, and most importantly, the kids who appeared in our film and played along with us.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?

LL: You can find the film on my Vimeo page at vimeo.com/user21497177.

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?

LL:  I’d like to thank The Emerging Filmmakers Project for cultivating a vibrant independent film community here in Denver that I’m excited and proud to be a part of.

“Avenue of Hope” will be screening at the May 2016 Emerging Filmmaker’s Project at the Bug Theatre.
