Swanberg on the Stairs

After a few weeks away, ReelerTV returns today with a busy episode full of news you can use. Hannah Takes the Stairs director Joe Swanberg joined me for a chat about his film's anchoring the ongoing Generation DIY series at IFC Center (not to mention a teaser of his forthcoming Web series, Butterknife), while Spout Blog's Karina Longworth dropped by the Pioneer Theater to discuss some of the same series' lesser-known titles. We celebrated William Friedkin Week in NYC and mourned the untimely passing of IFC TV, hacked to death by stone-hearted marketers wielding euphemisms like machetes. Click on the video above to view more.

Be sure to check us out next week at the Toronto Film Festival, where we'll be tracking down some of the New York stories and storytellers migrating north for the first week of fall (and fall premieres). Wish us safe travels -- we'll see you then!
