State of the Industry (FREE PANEL)

2010 Alumni

At DOC NYC, the programming places an emphasis on the creative side of doc making rather than the business. This event is an exception. The session will be divided into two parts, hearing first from filmmakers, then from industry figures as they look back on 2010 and describe what gives them hope and caution, reflecting on the trends, innovations, and surprises of the year. For doc professionals or aspirants, this is an invaluable opportunity to hear insider views on the state of the industry.
