As an antidote to the documentary filmmaker working in isolation, DocuMingles brings together filmmakers to foster support networks, mentoring relationships, and perhaps even collaborations. It's a documentary filmmaker brainstorming, networking, and support group all wrapped up in one. This program is open to Docs Insiders, Docs in Progress Alumni (screening and program) and other area documentary filmmakers. This is an opportunity to meet and mingle with others in the documentary community, share the progress of your film, and tell the latest tales of the journey to getting a documentary completed.
How is this different from other Docs In Progress programs?
Docs In Progress programs for emerging and established filmmakers have focused mostly on very public screenings (such as the Work-in-Progress Screenings), formalized feedback sessions (such as Peer Pitch), and informal networking opportunities (such as the Alumni Happy Hours and Open Houses). These programs are all been led by staff efforts. DocuMingles is is entirely alumni-initiated and enhances these programs to include focused but broader opportunities for networking and sharing. At the DocuMingles Meet-Ups, Docs In Progress Vice President Simone Fary and alum Rouane Itani will facilitate a discussion group where each participant will have a chance to share their latest successes, challenges, or tips in documentary filmmaking.
Networking and Light Refreshments
Each participant introduces themselves and talk about what they are currently working on.
One participant (pre-selected) will screen up to 10 minutes of a documentary work-in-progress (trailer, sequence, or short) and get feedback from other participants.
$10 in advance. $ 20 at the door (Free for members of the Docs Insiders program)
To get the lower rate, registration and payment must be received no later than midnight on July 10 in advance through our online registration system (PayPal and credit cards accepted). We also accept walk-ins but they must pay the higher amount in cash or check (made payable to "Docs In Progress"). No credit cards accepted for walk-ins and the organizers will not have any change.
