August 26-28 join the Seattle Documentary Association for DocForest, a documentary filmmaker's retreat at the Kitsap Forest Theater. The weekend retreat formerly known as DocFarm will be filled with guided peer-to-peer workshops, documentary films, camaraderie, bonfires, and great food. Recharge your creative spirit at this breath-taking environment in the woods!
The weekend kickoffs Friday evening with a Happy Hour followed by Rapid Recharge an event where we show YOUR favorite, brain tingling, jaw dropping, inspiring clips. We will show five minutes of any genre of film you bring.
During workshops discover the myths of distribution; practice pitching your dream project and honing your idea; and explore the ethics of documentary filmmmaking and the elements of storytelling.
Saturday evening is the screening of 10 min. Works-in-Progress clips. So along with your Rapid Recharge clip let us know if have a clip from an unfinished film you'd like to show and folks to discuss.
DocForest events end Sunday at 1pm so you'll have plenty of time to continue to enjoy the woods and head home.
Sleeping accommodations are available on site where you can bunk with other people in the cabin or bring a tent to camp. If you prefer to sleep offsite there are nearby hotels.
Ticket prices include the following chef catered meals: Friday Happy Hour; Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner; and Sunday breakfast and lunch.
Get inspired and get to know your fellow documentary filmmaking community at the 2011 DocForest!
