The Documentary Roundtable is a joint program of Docs In Progress and Women and Film and Video. Usually held on the second Monday of every month (except when there are holidays), these free meetings switch off between Washington DC and Silver Spring. The Washington DC meetings are focused on getting expert advice
All Documentary Roundtable meetings are FREE and you do NOT need to be a WIFV member, Docs Insider, or alum of Docs In Progress to participate. This is a great way to get to know others in the DC-area documentary filmmaking community, build your network and know-how, and find out about other offerings of these two organizations.
So What’s Happening This Month?
Tonight's meeting is facilitated by Matthew Radcliff.
The theme is Beyond Film Festivals: Getting Your Film Seen. The first step after finishing a film is often submitting it to film festivals. But what happens after the festivals? How can you get your film seen by audiences who are not connected to the festival circuit? We'll be joined by three filmmakers (all of whom are Docs In Progress alums) who have each taken different approaches to distribution. Joseph Pattisall, director of The Legend of ‘Cool’ Disco Dan, will talk about taking his film on a tour of museums around the country. Tessa Moran, producer and co-director of Fate of a Salesman, will talk about airing her film on the PBS series America ReFramed. Jason Osder will talk about the theatrical release for his film Let The Fire Burn.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT WE PUBLICIZE THIS PROGRAM BEYOND MEET-UP SO OFTEN HAVE MANY MORE ATTENDEES THAN YOU MAY SEE ON THE RSVP LIST.
