Filmwax Radio is Brooklyn’s favorite podcast featuring folks from the entire indie film spectrum. Guests include actors, filmmakers, programmers, journalists and other sundry creative and industry types.

Hosted by Adam Schartoff, the podcast began in September of 2011 and was originally part of an internet radio station. The program soon after became available on iTunes and started gaining an audience first within the indie film community, but soon among film lovers everywhere.

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