What is a producer for documentary filmmaking?

What is a producer for documentary filmmaking?

One of the unexpected (and most welcome) benefits of the technological shift towards digital formats and streaming platforms has been a resurgence of documentary features. With channel and distribution outlets giving unprecedented support for non-fiction stories, the rising tide has lifted all docs, including those geared toward theatrical exhibition. In this session, some of New York’s most renowned documentary filmmakers and champions come together to discuss what’s changing –and what’s stayed the same—in this most vital of formats. Session sponsored by PBS
