    About the Host

    Adam Schartoff was born and raised in New York City, specifically on the “mean streets” of Forest Hills. He worked in the music industry for many years before turning his attention to film in 2007. In 2011 he founded Filmwax, a media company devoted to the championing of independent films. Filmwax Radio began a short time later but has since grown into a familiar and popular part of the indie film landscape. Since its start there have been over 700 episodes with over 1200 guests. Additionally, Adam is a musician and armchair film historian. He currently lives in the Hudson Valley, works at the indie radio station WKZE, and is most proud of being Jacob’s Dad.
