Join the Live Streaming Webcast Tonight: Myths of Filmmaking and Funding

Posted on February 8, 2010

ITVS recently hosted a special live streaming webcast of the San Francisco Film Society (SFFS)’s Arts Forum, a bi-monthly workshop that includes dynamic presentations, topical panels, works-in-progress screenings, and trade secrets.

The forum, entitled “Thinking Outside the Doc Box,” is designed to explode the myth that funders and broadcasters only want one kind of film. The evening will feature a keynote address by ITVS Senior Programming Manager Richard Saiz. Karen Everett, owner of New Doc Editing will give an overview of innovative structural approaches to documentaries and Michele Turnure-Salleo, director of filmmaker services at SFFS, will address the topic of institutional funding of documentaries. The evening will conclude with a conversation between Saiz and Everett about contemporary issues in documentary production and questions from the live audience.
