Filmmakes Workshop

Adventures in Independent Filmmaking

Join us as we screen Doug Block’s terrific documentary “The Heck With Hollywood”, about the trials and tribulations of getting an independent film marketed and distributed. The film follows three filmmakers for four years as they struggle to finish and find distribution for their films. Afterwards we’ll hold discussion, share stories and trade resources.

Doug Block is the founder and co-host of The D-Word, the online forum for documentary professionals. His most recent film “51 Birch Street”, was named one of the top ten films of 2006 by the New York Times and one of the outstanding documentaries of the year by the National Board of Review. “The Heck With Hollywood” was called “The Definitive work on the plight of the Independent” by Screen International.
