Kartemquin Films and The Community Film Workshop of Chicago have opened applications for the 2017 edition of Diverse Voices in Docs (DVID). 12 producers will be selected from those who apply before the December 19 deadline. 2017 will be the fifth year of this successful program, which has now helped over 50 mid-career documentary filmmakers of color advance their projects through mentorship and skill-sharing since launching in 2013.
The inaugural DOC10 Film Festival is presented by the Chicago Media Project April 1st through 3rd at The Music Box Theatre, and will feature a Kartemquin presence. DOC10 hosts ten Chicago premieres of the best documentaries from 2015-16, with post-screening discussions, and musical performances and special events throughout the weekend. Learn more about the festival and view the full schedule.
We would like to thank all who came to last night's Kartemquin Spring Showcase. We were thrilled to see the sold out crowd at the Gene Siskel Film Center engaging so passionately and thoughtfully with these new works-in-progress; and in turn, to see the four debut directors so eloquently explaining their filmmaking choices, and future hopes for their films.
