How:
Assembling the financing for a documentary is particularly complex, given the limited funding sources and tension between the commercial and philanthropic priorities. How can filmmakers make business decisions that support values like creative independence, representation, sustainability, and authorship? Producers and funders will discuss the opportunities and obstacles in a time that is more akin to a “gold rush” than a “golden age.”
