|Title:||Filmmaker TalkBack: Indie Documentary Journalism|
|Category:||Panels & Talks|
Investigative cinematic journalism is capable of telling the most pressing stories of our time. But with the media under fire, how can indie filmmakers hold the powerful accountable and speak to audiences across the political spectrum? We will hear from documentarians who’ve been doing just that. AIFF2017 directors Cullen Hoback (What Lies Upstream) and Brian Knappenberger (Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press) are joined by AIFF alum Kirby Dick ( The Hunting Ground–AIFF2015, The Invisible War–AIFF2012) and Chelsea Hernandez (An Uncertain Childhood.)
Moderator: AIFF alum filmmaker Carrie Lozano is the director of the International Documentary Association’s Enterprise Documentary Fund. She was senior producer of Al Jazeera America’s Peabody Award®-winning investigative series Fault Line and produced the Academy Award-nominated The Weather Underground.
