Panel Discussion: What is Peace?
Panel Discussion: Peace Pitch – Works-in-Progress
Thursday, Sept. 18; 4pm @ The Alfond Inn; FREE
Local environmentalists/filmmakers Bob Giguere and Bill Belleville discuss their upcoming film Hidden Secrets of Florida Springs that explores their mysteries, including the fact that humans may have done more damage to Florida’s magical springs in the last half century than others have done in the last ten thousand years. And Eric Forman shares his work-in-progress Dead Time about two New York lawyers who have spent over 20 years defending a prisoner on death row in Alabama.
When David Dretzin, an aging NY lawyer who had spent 13 years working pro bono to free an Alabama death row inmate, dies in a tragic car accident, a young 28-year-old attorney David Kochman takes over the case. Shot over eight years, DEAD TIME follows Kochman as he continues the fight for justice in America’s Deep South. Its a story of intense commitment against all odds and an intimate look into the world of an inmate who has spent 23 hours a day in an 8×5 cell for almost 3 decades.
Panel Discussion: Making Films That Make a Difference
Friday, Sept. 19; 4pm @ The Alfond Inn; FREE
This panel will be led by Molly Murphy, Co-Director of Working Films. Recognizing the power of stories to inspire and transform, Working Films builds partnerships between nonfiction media-makers, nonprofit organizations, educators and advocates to advance social justice and environmental sustainability, and support community-based change. Working Films trains and consults filmmakers in audience engagement and works with NGOs to use documentaries to enhance their programs, extend their reach, and move their missions forward. Molly will be joined by filmmakers who will discuss their successes, challenges, and the commitment required to bring issue-oriented films to audiences in ways that straddle the double bottom line: making a living while making a difference.
