DocuClub is currently accepting submissions for an â€œIn-the-Worksâ€ program at SILVERDOCS. The â€œIn-the-Worksâ€ program offers filmmakers a safe environment to screen a rough-cut of their documentaries before an audience of their peers and lovers of the form. The audience is encouraged to give constructive feedback about the structure, content, characters and clarity of the film in a post-screening discussion facilitated by an experienced filmmaker.
Past films that have screened â€œIn-the-Worksâ€ include BORN INTO BROTHELS, METALLICA: SOME KIND OF MONSTER, and THE BOYS OF BARAKA, which won an Audience Award at SILVERDOCS.
Submission requirements for the â€œIn-the-Worksâ€ program at SILVERDOCS include the following:
â€¢ Films must be in rough cut stage and thus ready to be screened;
â€¢ Films must be no longer than 90 minutes and no less than 45 minutes;
â€¢ Filmmaker should be able to articulate specific challenges that you wish to workshop.
