2nd Annual Activist Filmmaker Bootcamp
Do you have an important story to tell to the world about economic justice, workers' rights or their fight to organize? Have the equipment and the passion but just not sure where to start? For the second year Workers Unite Film Festival is providing a space for emerging filmmakers to learn information on everything from finding your story to financing, distribution, networking with progressive groups for material and outreach. We are thrilled to have back the Director of Docs In Progress, Erica Ginsberg, from Washington, DC return to help filmmakers get their ideas onto the screen and out to the public. We will also have John Trigonis from Indiegogo, to explain the nuances of setting up your crowdfunding site so you have money to make your film.
We are also thrilled to have the participation of several established documentary filmmakers, who will screen clips from their most recent projects and answer your questions, give their advice and listen to your ideas about how to proceed and get your film finished and screened. Participants in include director Muta'Ali, sharing his new documentary about his grandmother, actress Ruby Dee, Kiley Kraskoukas & Michael Blain from Dear Walmart, Lindsay Davis with City of Trees, Justin Thomas from Truth Through A Lens, Annabel Park's Into The Divide, Victorious Costa from both The Love Seat and Can't Wear A Wig Forever and Khalik Allah with Field Niggas. We want to give each new filmmaker the chance to closely interact with those doc filmmakers who've been through the process and found success.
