We’re excited to invite you to the March 2018 gathering of The Video Consortium, a creative community of the world’s leading video journalists and nonfiction filmmakers that promotes and fosters socially-conscious, thought-provoking storytelling for a new era of media.
We’ll be co-hosting this event at the beautiful DCTV headquarters in downtown New York City (DCTV is also a member of KitSplit—you can check out their gear here!). The night will begin with mingling, drinks, and snacks, following by screenings of a few curated nonfiction shorts and a casual Q&A by the filmmakers. Per tradition, we’ll be keeping the films and filmmakers a secret until the event, but there’s always a great slate of nonfiction videos and film excerpts: at previous events with Video Consortium, we’ve screened pieces including a NYT 3D piece on the Olympics, a short by Oscar-award nominated documentary directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, a preview of director Erin Lee Carr’s HBO documentary ‘Mommy Dead and Dearest‘, and more.
