After Tiller: A Case Study of the Making and Launch of a Highly Successful Film
Wednesday, December 9th | 6:30-8:30pm
After Tiller, an intimate portrait of the lives of the four most-targeted abortion providers in the country, was one of the most successful documentaries of the past year. The film which premiered at Sundance, was released theatrically in more than 50 cities and broadcast nationally on POV, has won numerous awards including a recent Emmy for Best Documentary and received nearly universal critical acclaim. It was named one of the five best documentaries of the year by the National Board of Review, and featured in “Best of 2013” lists in the LA Times, Village Voice, Indiewire, Artforum, among others. We’re delighted to be joined by the film’s Co-Director/Co-Producers, Lana Wilson and Martha Shane, for an in-depth conversation about their filmmaking process from pre-production to launch. This wide-ranging case study will cover the struggle for funding, creative choices, designing a roll out strategy and engagement/outreach campaign. Don’t miss this rare behind-the-scenes opportunity to understand the many decisions involved in making and releasing a highly successful and impactful film.
