Personal Storytelling with Kimberly Reed
A DCTV PRESENTS MASTER CLASS
CO-PRESENTED WITH IFP

Every film has a personal angle. Filmmakers use material from their own lived experiences to construct stories, and viewers find resonance in those stories within themselves.

In this master class, Kimberly Reed will draw on her experience as a filmmaker, storyteller, and magazine editor, and will discuss how to find the universal in the personal and create compelling personal films.

By focusing on Prodigal Sons, her multiple award-winning autobiographical documentary, she will explore how filmmakers can maintain distance and objectivity from their own material, when to take advantage of personal material, and when not to employ personal storytelling strategies.

Other topics will include the unique challenges of working with friends and family, editing your own story, and managing media and technology during the process. Participants will have the opportunity to share questions and experiences with their own personal projects. Reed will share clips from her previous work and from other autobiographical filmmakers.


KIMBERLY REED:

Kimberly Reed is a filmmaker living in New York City. Her work has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, NPR, The Moth Radio Hour, and in Details magazine. She was recognized as Towleroad's "Best LGBT Character of the Film Year," The Advocate's "Five to Watch," and OUT Magazine's "Out 100."

Kimberly Reed directed and produced Prodigal Sons, a "whiplash doc that heralds an exciting talent." A co-production with BBC Storyville and Sundance Channel, Prodigal Sons premiered at the prestigious Telluride Film Festival, and has gone on to be shown around the world in theaters, at over a hundred festivals, and on television. The film landed on multiple Best of the Year lists and garnered 14 Audience and Jury awards, including the esteemed International Film Critics' FIPRESCI Prize. Reed was also the producer/editor/writer for Paul Goodman Changed My Life, released theatrically by Zeitgeist Films.

Her work has made her one of Filmmaker Magazine's "25 New Faces of Independent Film," a New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) fellow, and has led to multiple fellowships at the Yaddo Artists' Community and the Squaw Valley Community of Writers. Kim is a proud GLSEN and NewFest board member, a summa cum laude graduate of UC Berkeley, and a Montana native.
