The Bay Area documentary filmmaking community has been recognized internationally for decades for exposing contemporary and historical injustices at home and abroad, and for spotlighting the work of unknown or forgotten artists and activists. Each session will feature a new or recent one-hour film, followed by a candid, in-person conversation with its director. We’ll focus on the practical, financial, creative, and ethical aspects of crafting documentaries, from conception through editing to broadcast and distribution.
Partial list of filmmakers:
Abby Ginzberg, Agents of Change
Carrie Lozano and Charlotte Lagarde, The Ballad of Fred Hersch
Dawn Porter, Trapped
Charlene Stern, Near Normal Man
