I organized a session to be held on Satuday (March 12, 2005) as part of the Camera Company Show (see the March 1st entry) you might find interesting. I invite you to attend if you live in the Boston area. I just finished confirming the participants, so this line-up is not up on the Camera Company web site yet, but here it is here hot off the press.
Documentary Filmmakers on Documentary Filmmaking
March 12, 2005, 10:00AM – 12:00PM (More Info)
A panel of local documentary filmmakers will discuss the challenges and joys of shooting their documentaries and the journey they took from idea to distribution of their films. The filmmakers will share their real-world experiences in terms of fund raising, interviewing subjects, evolving their films during the editing process, finding the audience, the festival circuit-and finding distribution. The session will be highly interactive-with questions and answers from participants and lively discussion among the filmmakers. Organizer and Moderator: David Tamés.
