This work-in-progress provides an opportunity for local and visiting documentary filmmakers to screen their unfinished films to an audience and get valuable feedback. Each program generally includes a feature and a short documentary. After screening each film, facilitators from Docs In Progress moderate a feedback session with the audience. This honest and constructive feedback is aimed at helping the filmmakers get to the next stage of completing and distributing the film.
