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.
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 Docs In Progress alum Matthew Radcliff. The theme is Partnering with Nonprofits on Documentaries. Speakers will include:
Martha Dodge (http://marthadodge.net/), a video journalist who has been making some social justice short documentaries in consort with several non-rofits. She engages with the nonprofits in a way that is in-between a for-hire production company and as an independent documentarian partner.
Vanessa Serrao (http://www.sparkfiremedia.net/), a producer and consultant. She has been on both sides of the issue, as the Director of Digital Media & Communications at the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation and as the founder of Sparkfire Media, a production company specilizing in working with nonprofits.
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.
