Documentary Summit

This weekend I'm attending the Documentary Summit, a two-day event where filmmakers talk about filmmaking. Day one was really enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to today.

Yesterday I got to hang with some fun folks and hear about the work their doing, including Angela Alford who created Granny's Got Game. I'd seen her work online and it's been such a pleasure to talk to her about it in real life. I can't wait to see her documentary about ladies in their 70s who play basketball.

We heard from film folks based locally like Joanne Hershfield, Cynthia Hill, Rebecca Cerese, Eric Johnson, Jeffrey Scott Pearson, Steve Milligan, and Elisabeth Haviland James. I hope today will be just as enjoyable, and I'm sure it will.
