What is it that makes a documentary suitable for cinema and how does it capture an audience?
In recent years New Zealand has seen a number of documentaries receive cinema releases and international festival accolades. In this month’s Writers Room we will hear from two of NZ’s most successful doco makers and find out what they think it takes to steer a documentary towards the cinema.
Join Dan Shanan (Producer of Stage of Mind and Festival Director of the Documentary Edge Festival) in a discussion with Sumner Burstyn (This Way of Life), and Annie Goldson (Punitive Damage, Brother Number One) on the documentary story telling techniques that have led to success.
Drinks 7pm for 7:30pm Start, Tuesday 27 September, Upstairs at The Classic, 321 Queen Street, Auckland.
