Meet the Doc Programmers

This moderated session is an open dialogue intended to increase transparency between filmmakers and festivals – demystifying the festival programming process and giving filmmakers an inside look at the people behind the scenes.

This is also an opportunity for filmmakers to share stories and insights about their festival experiences – from submissions to notifications, screenings and more.
