Event Description

Overview: An opportunity to network, share successes and challenges in documentary filmmaking, and provide feedback to several filmmakers on their trailers.

The Documentary Roundtable is a joint program of Docs In Progress and Women and Film and Video. These free meetings switch off between Washington DC and Silver Spring. The Washington DC meetings are organized by Women in Film and Video and are focused on getting expert advice on topics related to documentary filmmaking. The Silver Spring meetings are organized by Docs In Progress and focused on peer feedback. Both meetings include time for networking. 

ALL Documentary Roundtable meetings are FREE only for members of WIFV or Docs In Progress Docs Insiders Premium Members. They are $10 for all others.  If you are a WIFV member or Docs Insider, use the Promo Code which has been provided to you.

TONIGHT'S FOCUS

Tonight’s meeting is facilitated by Docs In Progress alums Simone Fary and Richard Hall.  As an antidote to the documentary filmmaker working in isolation, it’s a brainstorming, networking, and support group all wrapped up in one.  This is an opportunity to meet others in the documentary community and share your latest successes, challenges, and tips on documentary filmmaking.
