Filmmaker to Filmmaker Roundtable: Stories from the field

Documentary filmmakers give candid accounts of the trials and tribulations of life in the field. Filmmakers share defining moments in their filmmaking careers: when a director's vision and the reality of the shoot come together and surpass all expectations: surprise gems that pop up when least expected; and the dreadful shoots that happen when nothing goes right. Directors will divulge "I will never do that again!" stories and offer insightful words of wisdom about technical foibles, language barriers, and so much more. This roundtable reveals how filmmakers overcome the most difficult odds to produce award winning documentaries.

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.
