Event description

Description

Join us for a Work-in-Progress Screening where you get to be a part of the creative process by watching a not-quite-finished documentary, and providing feedback to the filmmaker in a facilitated discussion following the screening.

WHAT IS SCREENING?

We will be screening and workshopping a 60 minute rough cut of:

First Vote
directed by Yi Chen
Take a journey with a soon-to-be first-time voter as she goes on a two-year journey into the American South and Midwest to capture ardent first-time voters' participation in American democracy against the backdrop of demographic changes and intensifying polarization.

HOW IT WORKS?
In the past 15 years, Docs In Progress has workshopped more than 175 documentaries through our Rough Cut screenings (originally called Docs In Progress Screenings) where a local or visiting filmmaker shares a not-quite finished version of their documentary to a general audience. Following the screening, a facilitator from Docs In Progress leads a workshop-style feedback session where the audience provides constructive feedback on the story structure and character development of these not-quite finished documentaries. This can be essential to help filmmakers move forward with creative blocks or to get a reality check on how their story is flowing or characters are coming across. While we welcome and treasure feedback from other filmmakers or topic experts at these screenings, we are equally interested in hearing from laypeople since most filmmakers are making films for a general audience.
