A Conversation With Thom Powers on the State of Documentary in 2012

A Conversation With Thom Powers on the State of Documentary in 2012 | Documentary Landscapes | Scoop.it
Programmers occupy a unique space in the film landscape, serving as a force that both curates and supports films, while often remaining unknown to all but the most impassioned cinephiles. Given that STF Artistic Director Thom Powers has made programming documentary film his life’s work, I thought it would be interesting to get his views on the state of documentary in the year 2012. What follows is a conversation we had on December 30, 2012.

Kūpuna: An interactive documentary

Kūpuna documents the small Hawaiian town of La'ie through the experiences and collective memories of its elderly, indigenous residents.

Via i-Docs
Justin Nalepa's insight:

There are so many stories from our elders that tell of a time past that can really give context to our own family roots and habits. I think that recording these stories to share with future generations is one of the most important things we can do as documentarians, filmmakers and storytellers. It is the tradition of passing on oral stories and histories, but with current and new technologies we are able to take that experience to the next level; offering more engagement with subjects and audiences than ever before.

The True\False Film Festival or How I Came to Love the Doc

The True\False Film Festival or How I Came to Love the Doc | Documentary Landscapes | Scoop.it
Held yearly around the first weekend of March, the True\False Film Festival focuses almost entirely on documentary films, typically with one or two “false” films to help it live up to its namesake. The location for the festival is Columbia, Missouri – smack dab in the middle of the state and the perfect venue. The founders, Paul Sturtz and David Wilson (also the founders of the Ragtag Cinema), still head up the event and strive to keep things feeling accessible to all lovers of film no matter how expansive the festival becomes, and growth is not in short supply.

BEYOND the BOX - What Makes a Good Work-in-Progress? | Documentary Landscapes | Scoop.it

Here at ITVS, one of the most asked questions is “What Makes a Good Work in Progress?”.  Unfortunately, there isn’t a simple answer.  The answer can vary depending on what material you have, the style of your film, what stage of production you’re in, etc.

 

Over the next three days, we will share the experiences of three ITVS-funded producers who successfully submitted their work-in-progress samples to our Open Call initiative.

MediaShift Idea Lab - Pop Up Archive Breathes New (Media) Life into Dusty Archives | PBS

MediaShift Idea Lab - Pop Up Archive Breathes New (Media) Life into Dusty Archives | PBS | Documentary Landscapes | Scoop.it

When we talk about the changing face of media on the web, archiving isn't generally the first subject to come up. As we were beginning Pop Up Archive, we grappled with the fact that it's hard to show the vibrant, innovative side of archiving. Historically, archives have been hands-off; this was necessary to preserve the artifacts. But digital artifacts can easily be shared: All you need is a will and the web.

 

We started this project because we believe in the power of voices from the past and in the importance of preserving those voices.
