Kartemquin Films, one of the most reputable documentary production companies in the will be coming to the Doc Center this week to demonstrate the art of the peer review. Known for their usually merciless stance on their review subjects, they can also be highly instrumental in making a film the best it can possibly be.
As a film is critically shaped in its final stages through reviews and critiques such as this, students from all majors and levels of experience are suggested to come to this event and learn how a proper critique is accomplished. Students are also welcome to bring their work to be screened and critiqued, though there is no guarantee it will be shown (it's on a first-come, first-serve basis).
When: Tuesday, November 16th @ 5pm
Where: the Doc Center (4th Floor of 1104 S. Wabash)
Kartemquin Films has producing quality social issue-driven documentaries for over 40 years. This event will be a great opportunity to not only understand a crucial process in a film's life, but it will be a wonderful networking opportunity. REMEMBER – Internship applications for Kartemquin are due December 1st!
See you on Tuesday,
Naomi Kothbauer – Viva Doc President
