Doing Your Doc San Francisco | September 12-14, 2014


Welcome to Doing Your Doc San Francisco 2014! 

Kicking off with a community screening, Doing Your Doc: Diverse Voices, Regional Visions is a  3-day regional documentary development/production seminars for Latino/a, African American, Native/Pacific Islanders, Asian, Middle Eastern, LGBTQ, and regional documentary makers in communities traditionally under-served by professional mentoring and information. The artists participating in this program are producing personal, community, social justice, and public media documentaries that reflect their experiences, and tell the stories of their regions and cultures. Now in its 8th year, this professional development program is designed to support individual media artist’s projects with skills instruction, relationship building, and artist mentoring. DYD also builds community between NALIP and local arts and cultural organizations, and amongst the local nonprofits and artists.
