In Light Film Festival features master class, speakers

The Media School Report • April 5, 2017

The Media School and its Center for Documentary Research and Practice are co-sponsoring the third annual In Light Film Festival April 7-9 at IU Cinema and other locations.

New this year is a master class on documentary filmmaking. It will be facilitated by directors Johanna Sokolowski and Kate Trumbull-LaValle from Ovarian Psycos, as well as director Matthias Kossmehl and film editor Andreas Nicolai from Cafe Waldluft. The workshop will cover in detail the processes and challenges of a documentary film project from conception to release. Register online for the free master class.

The festival also will include a roundtable discussion and six film screenings with six guests who will discuss contemporary global human rights issues.

The events are free, but the screenings are ticketed.
