Stranger Than Rotterdam with Sara Driver

It’s hard to make it in the film industry, and nobody can do it alone. Those who have made it have had a secret weapon, an ace in the whole. For Jim Jarmusch, his was Sara Driver. While trying to find funding to turn his short film, Stranger Than Rotterdam, into a feature film, Sara went above and beyond her call of duty as producer to find money for the feature. The short was invited to the famed Rotterdam Film Festival, the perfect shot at securing funding. The only problem: The festival only had the money to sponsor a flight and trip for the director, Jim. Jim was not a planner, he’s more of what you would call an “ideas-guy.” join him to talk to financiers at the festival. But how?
