Reflections on the 61st Robert Flaherty Film Seminar

Four filmmakers were selected to attend the 61st Robert Flaherty Film Seminar as LEF New England Fellows, including (pictured, L-R) Josh Weissbach, Eric Gulliver, Amahl Bishara, and Colin Brant. The seminar took place from June 13-19, 2015 at Colgate University in Hamilton, New York. This week, Eric Gulliver and Josh Weissbach share reflections on their experience.

Reflections on a week at the Flaherty from LEF’s Flaherty Fellows

From June 15 – 21, the Flaherty Film Seminar hosted its 59th program: HISTORY IS WHAT’S HAPPENING. For the uninitiated, this annual, intensive weeklong seminar brings filmmakers, programmers, scholars and students together to discuss, dissect and celebrate cinema. Since 2009, LEF Foundation has supported a fellowship program that sends New England-based filmmakers to the seminar for professional development and, importantly, inspiration. This year’s fellows were Beth Balaban, Chico Colvard, Hunter Synder, and Jim Wolpaw.

More from Julie Mallozzi at Flaherty!

It’s our first big chunk of downtime at the Flaherty Seminar.  We’ve seen some great work so far and started some interesting discussions.

Notes From Flaherty: Julie Mallozzi

I’ve arrived at the 57th annual Flaherty Seminar and just finished our first round of orientations for Fellows – about 28 interesting people coming from all over the U.S. (though Brooklyn is a little over-represented!) and Latin America. As I write, the other 100+ filmmakers, critics, and programmers are arriving – and our first happy hour begins soon. I’m looking forward to watching dozens of documentary films this week… and to the legendary discussions to follow.
