Storytelling through Documentaries

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Though many documentaries are pieces of non-fiction, they still very much employ conventions of storytelling. In fact, there's even a multi-layered writing process involved. From conception to post-production, documentary filmmakers are required to constantly adapt to unforeseeable elements and craft a narrative based off the stories and accounts they are able to capture. Join Paul Stekler (Last Man Standing: Politics Texas Style, George Wallace: Settin’ the Woods on Fire), Academy Award®-winning documentarian, Vanessa Roth, and the Executive Producer of POV, Simon Kilmurry, as they share just how important storytelling is within the world of documentary filmmaking.
