Durham, NC – The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival has announced a series of provocative conversations for the 2013 A&E IndieFilms Speakeasy. Speakeasy conversations will be held Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6, 2013 in the Durham Convention Center during the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.
The Speakeasy is a place where everyone from a first-time filmmaker to industry visionaries like D.A. Pennebaker and Michael Moore can share their expertise, dialogue about the state of documentary filmmaking and tackle issues immediately facing the documentary community.
Panelists include Academy Award-nominated directors, filmmakers whose films have grossed millions of dollars in revenues, as well as provocateurs who are pushing boundaries on topics that are playing out in news headlines and others that are often sidestepped as taboo.
Each panel is filmed and made available online after the festival, and the use of social media is encouraged. The panel conversations are free and open to the public, no ticket is required. For more information, please visit: http://www.fullframefest.org/filmsevents/speakeasy-conversations/
