Work-in-Progress Screening of VOICES FROM BROOKLAND MANOR and BREAKING BARRIERS (IE2-2110)

May 16, 2018 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM EDT  
George Washington University  /  805 21st Street, NW, Washington, DC 20037, United States

How it Works?

We screen not-quite finished documentary for an audience made up of both filmmakers and non-filmmakers. As you watch each film, think about how it is flowing. What really stands out? What confuses you? What do you still have questions about? Were there any moments which were too slow or too fast?

Following each film, the facilitator will ask the filmmaker a few questions about the intentions behind the film and who is considered the target audience. 

This will be followed by a workshop session where the audience will provide feedback on the film. Audience members are not required to speak up, but this is definitely more of an audience-focused conversation than it is a traditional Q&A session.

Since 2004, Docs In Progress has facilitated feedback sessions on the rough cuts of more than 150 documentaries...with your help. Watch two not-quite-finished documentaries and participate in a facilitated workshop-style feedback session with the audience. This honest and constructive feedback is aimed at helping the filmmakers get to the next stage of completing and distributing their films. This program is open to filmmakers and film lovers!
