As both a cinema studies student and a keen watcher of documentary I want to share up and coming documentary directors and their work with the SUNY Purchase community. I plan to host a one day film festival screening three new films at the SUNY Purchase Performing Arts Center allowing the audience to interact with the directors and think critically about the future of film, specifically documentary.
Beginning at 9AM and ending at 7PM, with each film running at approximately two hours, there will be plenty of time for a special interview and a question and answer portion for the audience to participate in. Because movie watching is hungry work, there will also be lunch and refreshments provided for the festival goers and special guests. This will allow the audience and directors to mingle. Hopefully this film festival will provide an entry point for the SUNY Purchase community and surrounding areas into the documentary film world.
