What we're about
Purpose: Networking and creative cross pollination for professionals and others who love the craft of documentary filmmaking. Who Should Join: - Documentary Filmmakers at every professional level, - Emerging filmmakers interested in documentary production - Documentary enthusiasts interested in learning about the craft of documentary production Why This Group: I have learned in the ten years that I have been privileged to interact with documentary filmmakers that they are some of the most interesting people on the planet. They are insatiably curious, dedicated to issues that matter, passionate for telling stories that make an impact, open-minded but critical thinkers, well-traveled and extremely well-informed. But even with all these admirable qualities, rarely will you find them arrogant. I think this is because they are usually humbled by what they have seen in their work around the world. This combination of wisdom is rare in any group of people but for documentary producers it is the norm. So to share a meal or a drink with a group of these great storytellers is an experience that rarely fails to entertain, enlighten and inspire. If you are a documentary filmmaker we hope that you will join this group and take advantage of the meetups that we will plan throughout the year. Whether you are a seasoned professional or just beginning to produce, we encourage you to join and attend. And even if you are only now beginning to consider making documentaries, just have a great idea or story that you think would make a good documentary and would like to share it or discuss its merits, or if you are just generally interested in the craft of documentary filmmaking, we would love to have you join us. Thanks for checking us out and hope to see you in one of our upcoming meetings.
