DCTV Presents Your Day Is My Night tomorrow, June 20 at Wythe Hotel. Part of the Northside Festival.
I’ve been following this project for a long time now, and am glad to see it finally coming out soon. On June 20th, Elaine McMillion and team will be launching a new type of doc - an online only, interactive, participatory doc experience called Hollow. From the press release:
POV kicks off its 26th season on PBS with Homegoings on June 24, 2013 at 10 PM. Check local listings.
It’s a hard truth of documentary, one which too many issue-oriented filmmakers are slow to learn, that conveying large chunks of information — in the sense of facts and figures — is not something for which the medium is especially well-suited.
Every year in my capacity as Film Editor of The A.V. Club, I would send out a raw list of movie titles to my core staff for year-end list consideration, ordered chronologically by their release date in New York City. But lately, I’ve been sending out “halftime” lists, too, and even published annotated versions of those lists on the site. I recently put together a halftime list for our writers at The Dissolve, too, and thought I’d share that with our Tumblr followers.
Northside Festival starts tomorrow! Don’t forget: DCTV Presents and UnionDocs are co-presenting Paris Is Burning and Radical Love on Monday, 6/17!
If you own a Mac and a camcorder, you can make a documentary, basically. That wasn’t the case so much, 10 years ago or even five years ago. But also people are doing some neat subject matter.
Konney was talking to the Associated Foreign Press about the recent boom in documentary film-making.
Konney’s company is currently trying to market “After Porn Ends”, a documentary about 12 pornography actors who struggle to resume normal life after a career in the sex industry.
