Whew, it’s been a while. After the high school season ended and most of my grants were sent, I have been back to shooting with Democracy Prep and the continued saga with Cooper. Leaving no opportunity wasted, I applied to pitch at the AFI Film Festival showcase called Docs In Progress. This is a great platform to get feedback from the audience about your pitch and your visual materials. Here’s more about AFI:
AFI Docs Presented by Audi (formerly Silverdocs) is an internationally recognized event that honors excellence in filmmaking, supports the diverse voices and free expression of independent storytellers and celebrates the power of documentary to improve our understanding of the world. Now in its 11th year, the festival is embarking on a transformational chapter in its history with an expansion into landmark Washington, DC venues and with the AFI Catalyst Sessions which serve as stimuli for national public discourse and an opportunity to engage our nations leaders with filmmakers striving to shine a light on the greatest issues of today. The festival historically has attracted over 27,000 documentary enthusiasts, policy-makers and thought leaders.
See you soon, Maryland!
