Our cover salutes the Woods Hole Film Festival’s
25th year and its Opening Night Film NORMAN
LEAR: JUST ANOTHER VERSION OF YOU.
Our heartiest congratulation to Judy Laster
who continues to produce a festival that attracts
excited audiences every year.
Norman Lear, arguably the most influential
creative force in television history, changed the
face of the small screen—and American culture—
through a string of hit shows in the 1970s. Topical
series such as All in the Family, Maude, Good Times, and The Jeffersons tackled taboos of race, class, and gender through humor and prodded audiences to confront longstanding prejudices.
Masterfully crafted characters like Carroll O’Connor’s Archie Bunker and Bea Arthur’s Maude Findlay introduced progressive ideas into living rooms around the nation. Acclaimed filmmakers Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady compose an artful
portrait and appreciation of the incomparable Lear. Present-day interviews with the writer/producer, now 93 years old and still professionally active, underscore the thoughtfulness he employed first as he crafted his groundbreaking television
series and later in his activist work, including the founding of the progressive advocacy organization People For the American Way.
NORMAN LEAR: JUST ANOTHER VERSION OF YOU is also the Centerpiece Film at the Nantucket Film Festival.

I need a bigger magazine for all the content we would really like to print. The industry has grown so that we need more pages. In any event, we need more
opportunities to tell all the stories that matter.
So we are designing a digital “imagine EXTRA” for just those over flow stories and breaking news that can’t wait until we go to print. Watch for it; it’s coming soon. 2016 has brought significant challenges for our industry. I do believe we have bested those challenges once again and it is our duty to thank all the stakeholders,
individuals and the legislators who supported us.
