Pre-publication review is standard practice for news and broadcast organizations. Editors, lawyers, reporters and fact-checkers not only verify the facts, but also vet the implications of all the information being presented. Indie filmmakers often don’t have the resources or organizational support for this process, yet it’s a critical component of high-stakes work. So what can they do before they premiere, what should they be looking for? Filmmaker Marilyn Ness (Charm City) and producing team Daffodil Altan and Andres Cediel (Rape in the Fields, Rape on the Nightshift, and Trafficked in America) share specific case studies with their lawyers Katie Townsend and Dale Cohen to lift the curtain on pre-publication review.
