DISCUSSION: Echoes of European Documentary Film
► Thursday, March 25th at 3 pm EST (8 pm CET)
Join our discussion with three European filmmakers with different experiences, in different places in their careers, as they discuss their films featured in the Echoes of Jihlava in New York and so much more, with a special focus on American context. What was the reception of their films and their experience with American festivals, distributors, and audiences? Is reaching America a priority for them and what advice do they have for other filmmakers? Do they have any tips for American fans of European documentary cinema?
The discussion with Adam Ol’ha of Alchemical Furnace, Hubert Sauper of Epicentro, and Pedro Fernandes Duarte of Ghosts: Long Way Home. Moderated by Summre Garber, a documentary filmmaker and film festival programmer based in Los Angeles.
