On the first day of our "Meet The Filmmaker" talks at the Soho Apple Store, we hosted the filmmakers of TFF 2013's opening night feature Mistaken for Strangers. We welcomed director Tom Berninger, The National lead singer Matt Berninger, Executive Producer Marshall Curry, and Producers Carin Besser and Craig Charlin. The group anwered both moderated and audience-sourced questions about everything from the filmmaking process to Matt's musical style. We've collected ten of our favorite quotes from the evening for those of you who couldn't make it out (and don't forget to come out for the rest of our Meet The Filmmakers series!)
