Here is a roundup of some of my favourite interviews that I conducted for FRED Film Radio, the international online talk radio on all things cinema, this month (October 2020). Interviews are drawn from this month’s episodes of my weekly radio show, Big FRED Tuesday, and the extensive coverage of the 2020 Rome Film Fest for the radio that I was part of.
