"Welcome back to the a documentary life. How are you Mr Linden Stone? It's good to have you back on the show. Good Chris is good to speak in enjoy Cambodia. Yes Cambodia was great. You know so great that we're looking to head back here in fairly short order so thanks for thanks for writing in about that. I appreciate that so Linden. We've been talking to you now. I think this will be our third year that we've talked to you and correct me if I'm wrong here M._d.. F F has now this will be its fourth year correct. Yes incredible. It's just a fourth year Chris but just in four years how things have changed in the landscape in documentary. It's the it's it's really interesting and not getting in the landscape of documentary itself but I just want to stop you there for a minute because because M._d.. Theft after four only four years you guys have truly become one of the more respected documentary film festivals around so I know it at the outset man. I want to say congratulations. I really do thanks Chris. I really appreciate Shit. What do you attribute this success to? I think we had some strange to have it. TRIBECA and all the filmmakers coming up what's Melvin documentary film festival like talking about them. If you had a lot of submissions from all the major American film festivals and stuff like trick Big Sky Sundance so eat a lot of traffic submissions from there's film festivals but it's really changed I think now I didn't know how big it really was the Australian through my Kim back from Jamaica <unk> fistfuls huge in America so the whole the whole dynamic of when I think when North America thinks documentary they think Melvin documentary now it's incredible and it comes down to a few things few marketing things a few different things yeah I mean in the Straits different. It's it's antenna which is in Sydney and I think probably you're probably the same antenna but in North America that's the majority of the submissions come from it's actually Melvin documentary and that's an incredible change in four years. It's huge. It's really really big here. It's exciting. It's exciting. Can you get one or two reasons that you can point to that. You feel that that has happened while I think mainly. Maybe it's probably still freeway. They nailed it. premanent force you know without the boxes closed down in some MM freeways being promoting us and there's not too many dedicated documentary film officials in Australia's in ten obviously and Sydney is in Cambra is stronger than fiction great people yet did camera and then there's us in Melvin. That's that's about it. I mean there's the Environmental Film Festival Transitions Film Festival human rights but they also going to drown but other than that it just unabashedly documentary. There's only really three and that's always the three major ones we've become in North America at Leissner the preeminent force in documentary. It's just incredible house chain and she doesn't for years. You know things can change like that so it's it's really incredible just incredible right yeah. It's been really fun to see from this `send both as a filmmaker and as the host of this podcast and certainly because we've had you on almost from the beginning. It's been really exciting to see that so again. Congratulations Linden takes now this year Linden. What's what is what's new or different that you can and tell us about <hes> about this year's m._d._f.? Well this yeah I think. Probably you know we are simultaneously. You know we always turn on people. We always like we had bob hope from film hawk. We've got to chipmunk from Woodstock so he's trying to honor. People people pretend to different things doing this new thing called new voices so we're trying to find you know up and coming emerging filmmakers. We've got a great one from America from Baker. He's done seventeen blocks Davey robot. He is absolutely incredible. It's like it's almost like forty two and up an incredible documentary and then obviously these new got all these legendary documentary drake's Barbara Coppel isn't that great and then Alex winter is well like a main east bright shining star in Greeley lovely guy and even record little video for us. I mean guy is just really really nice guy but in terms of different categories we're doing video essays who kind of branching out trying to bring video sandwich is seen as a different genre into the fold into the documentary followed in obviously we do duck web series which is very progressive very similar to ideas I who do duct tape series. I think we're the only one who does dark web series okay great and I think that's probably a good you know another trying to bring people into documentary like we do documentary photography yes so yeah it's kind of a point of difference trying to innovate progressive yeah and it's working and I think it's going incredibly well and <hes> and really connecting with a good audience. That's kind of what the hot Docs. It's winter that still people coming out in droves. It's going to be good yeah. That's great. That's great. I know last year you mentioned trying to do something a little more for the dock filmmakers themselves has that been have you been able is that is that transpired in any way this year with M._d._f.. While I can see obviously with with we always try and be as filmmakers film festival and obviously it's a competition. It's hard sometimes when people submit and you have to say no but what we what we tend to do now is I mean it was done this in the past. I think we only do that. We give people complimentary double-pass to come along. You know so offsets most if not all of their Smithfield people take us up on that offer they can come to any cell in the in the system and I give them a double pass to go and see that since it's kind of trying to be a female centric fister we also give people feedback on submissions still do their <hes> we took a mastercard during a couple of master classes with one lecture from Switzerland. One lecture for Monash wants to make you pierce documentary you had doug block on us and we're doing one on making Australia. Music documentaries Stralia makes fantastic music. They're really really strong in that and I think that's a key element that can <hes> different Australia from mother kind of thumb. Dot Carnations is so strong so good at making Australian music documentaries so passionate about it so well edited well put together all these great little stories stories or anecdotes that put into us they put passion to you can just see on the screen. I've got a great one. <hes> waiting Van Buren story and it's just it's just wonderful to see is an indie documentary. Just passionate put together and it's just great it's really kinetic and really connect with an forties and that's it's great to see that this so much talent in Australia's and it's it's really wonderful to see and to showcase it yeah so we are speaking with Claudio von Plot and his current film his documentary directorial debut of course he's a well known DP. He and we're speaking of implant in this film is chasing the jetstream. What can you tell us Linden about why this particular film was chosen? What was it about chasing the jetstream that spoke to you well? That's the thing it's different like his two documentaries on one is. The science side which looks at jetstream technology and how that can revolutionize the energy crisis around the world and then there's also the adventure conincided about Mark Hausa preparing to jump into the gym pitcher <unk> ahead like like kind of Focus Group watch it and and they actually really liked it. Some of these critics don't quite get it like what's this guy doing and it's kind of science. It's kind of but but I like it because it's different. That's why I picked it up same with a lot of the films that we have we try and be trying to bring new kind of kind of documentaries along with hard hitting documentaries award winning documentaries. We're trying to have some stuff there. There's a little bit list of saint a little bit different. Yeah I think it's unique and the focus group loved it so I have you seen her Chris. If you've watched I have I have I have and what do you think we're talking with him momentarily. Yeah I think it's great. I love that you know of course I was familiar with Claudio Claudius work as a DP certainly with the long way round documentary series that he'd be with you and McGregor and Charlie Boardman and yeah so I was I was definitely excited to see it and I was not let down and the subject material is as you said is it is fascinating in both from a scientific or science a sort of realm as well as of course the human element so so Linden as we wrap up here as we've done our sort of yearly check in with you. Shut US know when and how we might be able to attend M._D._f.. Went when is when is M._d..

"Where in the middle of New South Wales in Cumberland, and the locals comp believe this is happening in their town. It's the not before the big jump, and I wanna know what Marx feeling. It was quite a bit was last minute planning. And I think that's usually how it gets at the end. But the no, you're all ready. Even we can even get of sleep. Yeah. Well, it's about recording. Yes, I'm recording. I'm thinking, maybe two. The main target in the main goal of the mission is to show the untapped clean. Energy potential of the jet stream if you want to attract people for such a such your subject, you have to make a kind of stunt median, I think kind of stunt when you have to jump without wings at all. So you jump into normal suit. Then it could maybe a tracked people to the higher coz. And that's why we're doing it. We've just wanted into the conduct pod. But this point so what's this higher? 'cause Lynn that marks talking about the jet stream being potential source of energy. We'll back in his home in Switzerland. There are a number of start at companies that are doing these. They using the power of the jet stream to produce electricity rods a little bit like how winter vines would work on earth early. This is all happening up Janda. Yes. A bit of both. There's a car that goes up yonder. And then there's a string that comes back down to earth. And that's where the little turbine is. So the thing is tethered up into the jet stream. And that's why people think is not very viable and actually quite dangerous. So it's very very much in the experimental phase. But you know, I actually think mocks higher coz might be something else. Hey. Yes, you are Nova. Early Jonasson miserable. Pint Shane though, I have I have. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. I will open to the otherwise it would hurt. And then I think it will work must work. Okay. So is my leaves the pub to get a good nuts late because it's going to be moderately stuff. You will what do you recommend high was easily? I think it's got to do with human ambition. I think it's got to do with that desire to fly. That's completely crazy away. When deal foot is a pilot in a professional economist, and she designs environments that might people perform at their best. And so she's really interested in aviation. And when I told her the story of Mark Hausa, she told me the story of Harry hawker. Harry Hoke was very famous stating aviator in nineteen fourteen.
