You’ve devoted five years of your life to making your film ? now what? Moderated by NPR TV Critic, Eric Deggans, PBS and WNET present a conversation with acclaimed filmmakers about the evolving distribution landscape. With more choices than ever, what is the right way forward? Public media offers expanding avenues for distribution and a network of local stations and opportunities to attract new audiences. In a candid conversation, filmmakers Alexandra Dean (AMERICAN MASTERS “Heddy Lamarr”), Steve James (MINDING THE GAP and FRONTLINE “Abacus – Small Enough to Jail”), Eugene Jarecki (THE KING), Morgan Neville (WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR) and Sam Pollard (American Masters “Sammy Davis, Jr.”) discuss their experiences, Festival releases, and the path that led them to partner with PBS.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
