FOR FILMGOERS and FILMMAKERS: Contemporary Documentary Filmmaking
How does a documentary get from notion to motion picture? Director Phil Cox gives a workshop on methods of documentary filmmaking. He will break down scenes and rushes from individual films, look at the options modern documentary filmmakers have at their disposal to create their stories, discuss how to make connections with subjects, and talk about the everyday production and multi-tasking issues that filmmakers deal with.  This session is listed as "Pay What You Can."
