Attend NYU-SCPS Panel Discussions at DOC NYC

Celebrate documentary filmmaking and gain insights from leaders and innovators in the industry at the second annual DOC NYC Film Festival.

The NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies Department of Design, Digital Arts, and Film will participate in the Festival by co-presenting three panels.

Join us on November 5 at the NYU Kimmel Center.

10 a.m.—Case Study: Making and Distributing Buck explores the key steps that first-time filmmaker Cindy Meehl took to make this film about the real-life horse whisperer Buck Brannaman, and to get it into theaters. Panelists include director Cindy Meehl, producer Julie Goldman, sales agent Josh Braun, and distribution specialist Ryan Werner of Sundance Selects.
1 p.m.—Telling Global Stories, co-presented by the NYU-SCPS Center for Global Affairs, features veteran filmmakers discussing the challenges and the rewards of filming in foreign locales. If you've ever wanted to travel the world making films, this class is for you!
4 p.m.—How Film and Philanthropy Work Together, co-presented by the NYU-SCPS George H. Heyman, Jr. Center for Philanthropy and Fundraising, examines opportunities for partnerships between philanthropists and filmmakers to obtain financing, and to reach wider audiences. Dan Cogan of Impact Partners leads this lively discussion
