Diverse Voices in Docs Launch Event

Thursday, November 8, 2012 6:30 pm

Community Film Workshop
6200 South Drexel Avenue
Chicago, IL

A launch event for Diverse Voices in Docs, a new emerging filmmaker incubator from Kartemquin and the Community Film Workshop. The launch event is free and open to the public. We encourage you to come along, meet our staff and filmmakers, and give your own feedback on this new program. We really want to hear from the filmmakers what they want to learn and how we can best help them.

Networking begins 6:30pm, informational program and discussion at 7pm. Kartemquin filmmakers and staff and local community leaders will all be attending.

Diverse Voices in Docs

A professional development and mentorship program for emerging documentary filmmakers of color.

At the core of the program are six engaging three-hour workshops at the Community Film Workshop, with creative advice provided by Kartemquin Films’ world-class staff and associates. Each session will provide practical skill-enrichment designed to help incubate your next documentary project, as well as time to network and share experience with your cohort of participants.

Applicants should be filmmakers who have played a principal role in a completed production (producer, writer, director, editor, etc.) and have experience or work history that demonstrated their commitment to social issue documentary.

We will facilitate continued engagement throughout the six-month workshop program, and connect you to an expert community, collaborators and a wider network of funders and distributors. The program will culminate in exposure through a final public exhibition in late 2013.
