Event description

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 monthly program co-hosted by Docs In Progress and Women in Film and Video. These meetings switch off between expert talks held in Washington DC and "Trailer Nights" held in Silver Spring. The Silver Spring meetings are focused on peer feedback and include time for networking. 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; share your latest successes, challenges, and tips on documentary filmmaking; and provide feedback to several filmmakers on their trailers or scenes. This program is facilitated by Simone Fary and Richard Hall, local filmmakers and longtime community members of Docs In Progress.

The trailers we will be workshopping are:

Red and Black
Directed by Charles Germain
In the United States it is well documented that over half of the black population has mixed-race ancestry. While much of the focus in Virginia has been on descendants of slaves whose ancestry includes that of white slaveholders, there has been less focus on African Americans with Native American roots. A group of descendants has formed the Weyanoke Association to to reconnect with their ancestry, claim ownership of traditional rituals and culture of the Native tribes and African Nations, and to heal in peace.

Women of Faith: Coping with Trauma
Directed by Angela Heath
This documentary film takes an in-depth look into the lives of four women who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse, but who also triumphantly find love, joy, hope and peace through their faith in God and their community.

Naturboy
Directed by Mike Kepka

Elijah Naturboy enjoys hanging out in Malcolm X/Meridian Hill Park in Washington DC where he'll talk about most things when asked and offers words of wisdom to all who are open them. If it weren't for the lack of clothes, except for a loin cloth fashioned as jean shorts, and his belief that he is the second coming of Christ, he might be any other friendly old man on a bench.


All Documentary Roundtable meetings are free for members of WIFV, Docs In Progress Docs Insider Premium and above members, and Alexander House residents (use Promo Code provided to you). They are $10 for all others.
