Documentary filmmakers take note: Sundance Institute invites you to its inaugural day-long ShortsLab in Los Angeles. The program is slated for September 13 at LA’s independent rep house Cinefamily, and will focus on short-form documentary films.
This intensive seminar will host screenings, discussions and insight into the world of short-form documentary storytelling, production and exhibition. Attendees include acclaimed filmmakers Rodney Ascher ("Room 237"), Kirby Dick ("The Invisible War"), Lauren Greenfield ("The Queen of Versailles"), AJ Schnack ("Kurt Cobain: About a Son") and Oscar nominee Lucy Walker ("The Crash Reel"). Sundance’s Documentary Film Program director Tabitha Jackson will be there, as will programmers from the Sundance Film Festival.
Among the Sundance Institute alumni documentarians who work in the short form are Lauren Greenfield, Albert Maysles, Ondi Timoner, Monika Treut, Ava DuVernay, Errol Morris, Werner Herzog, Sam Green, Godfrey Reggio and Steve James.
