Each program generally includes a feature documentary and one or two short documentaries. 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.

WHAT'S SCREENING?

Journey to the Center of Artomatic (3 minute trailer) by Jay Krasnow
It's often said that arts and commerce are at war. In fact, the two can work and in hand. In 1999 a group of Washington, D.C., area artists joined forces with commercial real estate developers to their mutual benefit. The result? A weeks long arts expo called Artomatic.What began with 350 visual artists has grown into a Washington institution which attracts more than 1,000 artists, musicians, comedians, poets, and filmmakers


Life on Death Beach (7 minute segment from a longer documentary) by Jeff Arak
A coastal town in Oaxaca is a microcosm of struggles for recognition within Mexican society, as told from a group of volunteer lifeguards or the patients and therapists at a center working to rehabilitate people with disabilities.


Forgotten Soldiers (80 minute rough cut) by Donald Plata
Considered one of the most elite groups of the U.S. army during the Second World War, the Phillipine Scouts were credited with one of the greatest success stories for the Allies in the Pacific -- keeping Japan from invading Australia. Although they fought America's first major ground battle of the war, their story remains largely unknown.
