Please share in the Flaherty glow. Jesse Epstein shines it brightly!
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.
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.
I had the privilege of attending a tribute to Ricky Leacock over the
weekend at MIT’s Media Lab. The program was filled with honest, funny,
and moving stories from those who knew him best – his collaborators, his
students, and, of course, his beloved family.
Last weekend I headed out to the Chicago Underground Film Festival, which was was a great experience.
This year’s Making Media Now was held on Friday, May 6th at Bentley University. The theme for the conference was “Re-defining Collaboration in a Fractured Media World.”
It was standing room only at the LEF/DocYard sponsored panel “When Does A Story Become a Film?: From Idea to Documentary” at IFFB on Sunday.
3 films and 1 panel not to miss at the Independent Film Festival of Boston!
With all of the new documentaries in town this week for the Independent Film Festival Boston…
A wedding registry is a very helpful way to avoid getting terrible gifts from your family when you and your true love finally make it legal (for those of us who are allowed to make it legal). But let’s be honest, your film is really your true love, right? So why not encourage your family and friends to make a gift through your film registry?
I was privileged last week to attend the opening day of the National Conference on Media Reform.
I’ve been reading some wonderful content on the Nieman Storyboard, a great resource from the Nieman Foundation
