Ahead of the third annual Meet the Press Film Festival, anchor Chuck Todd and executive producer John Reiss spoke to TheWrap about expanding the Sunday show’s brand to keep up with the changing media landscape.
“I don’t know how else to do this job in this changing media environment where there’s a million places to go,” Todd said during a discussion of the daily MSNBC show, the podcast and the film festival spinoff of the hour-long political program.
This year’s festival, in collaboration with the American Film Institute, will showcase more than 20 issue-based short documentary films from five countries, submitted by the likes of Netflix, HBO, A&E, ESPN, and more.
The films highlight topics like criminal justice reform, climate change, immigration, education, and racial and gender equality.
The two-day Meet the Press Film Festival begins today in Washington, D.C.
