Reader Submissions: What Documentary Are You Working On?

By

It often takes years for a documentary to evolve from an inspiring moment of observation or curiosity about an idea or event to a finished film that's ready to be presented to audiences. As the film takes shape through pre-production, filming and editing phases, filmmakers smartly develop a support community by reaching out to people concerned about their project's subject and/or issues it investigates. Let us know what you're working on so we can support you, look forward to seeing your finished film and get a heads up on screenings and release dates.
