ATTN: DC-area documentary filmmakers
Docs In Progress is holding an all-day workshop next Saturday, January 23 in Silver Spring which is focused on fundraising for documentaries. This workshop is appropriate for documentary filmmakers of all experience levels – whether you have never raised funds for an independent documentary or have been frustrated by your efforts to do so.
The focus will be on providing participants with concepts and tools that can help you learn how to develop a fundraising plan, track the fundraising effort, research potential donors, conduct a fundraising drive, and solicit grants from corporations and foundations. There will be plenty of handouts of samples. The workshop is being led by Sam Hampton, an experienced fundraiser. Dr. Hampton, in addition to being the Director of Planning and Special Projects for Docs In Progress and a documentary filmmaker himself, is also the Founding Partner of Hampton Consulting, LLC which works with nonprofit, philanthropic, corporate, and public sector clients on building their strategic plans and increasing their chances of fundraising success – elements which apply just as easily to documentary filmmaking.

Docs In Progress is excited to welcome two guest experts to our workshop offerings at the Documentary House in downtown Silver Spring, MD:

WHEN? Monday, January 25 (6:30 Networking/7:00-8:30 pm Presentation and Q&A)
FEE? $35 ($30 for Docs In Progress DocsInsiders). Because of limited space for only 15 participants, advance registration is highly recommended.

Christine Intagliata's presentation on Writing Documentary Treatments was so popular last Fall that we've brought her back to lead a three-night workshop on the same subject. She'll focus on how to take the film in your head and translate your ideas into words to help with fundraising or working with a specific client. Participants will receive samples of successful treatments and, because this is a longer session, will get to develop their own treatments during the course.
WHEN? January 28 – February 11 (three consecutive Thursday nights from 7:00 – 9:00 pm)
FEE? $250 ($225 for Docs In Progress DocsInsiders). Because of limited space for only 10 participants, advance registration is highly recommended.
