Filmwax Radio is America’s favorite podcast featuring luminaries from the indie film community. Guests include actors, filmmakers, festival programmers, journalists and just about anyone else with a stake in the game.

Hosted by Adam Schartoff, Filmwax Radio began in September of 2011 and it wasn’t long before the show became the spot to stop by and discuss your latest project.

Beginning in the summer of 2013, Filmwax Radio began a partnership with Rooftop Films. As a result, the show may be listened to on the Rooftop Films website using the built-in audio player, as well as by subscribing on iTunes or Stitcher at no cost.
