Join us next Thursday, March 19, for a master class with Katy Chevigny, director of E-TEAM! Don't miss this great opportunity,
documentary filmmakers working today. Katy, an award-winning filmmaker, is a co-founder of Big Mouth Productions and Arts Engine. Her most recent success is the acclaimed documentary E-TEAM which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival where it won the Cinematography Award for U.S. Documentary.
Katy will share her experience and expertise, show clips from her work, discuss the ethics of filmmaking, her creative choices and the importance of craft, drawing upon her 20 year career as a documentarian - Chevigny's films have been shown theatrically, on HBO, Cinemax, POV, Independent Lens, NBC, Arte/ZDF, Britain's Channel 4, and others, and have played at film festivals around the world, including Sundance, Tribeca, Full Frame, SXSW, IDFA, Sheffield and Berlin. She will also talk about the challenges of filming in foreign countries and cultures and about her relationship to her subjects. Join us for what promises to be a thoroughly engaging and thought-provoking evening!
