Session 2: How it started. How it’s going.

FREE (registration required)

How has filmmaking evolved two years into the global pandemic? For emerging directors who are looking to build their first collaborative relationships, what challenges are they facing? For veteran filmmakers, what adjustments have been needed? And as the boundaries of work and personal lives are blurred, compounded with physical distance and isolation, what role has self-care played on our mental health? We’ll hear from filmmakers, producers and mentors Marjan Safinia, Su Kim and Hao Wu moderated by CAAM fellows Pallavi Somusetty, Norbert Shieh and Kevin Truong about their experiences, pursuits and struggles at this time.

This program is co-presented by A-Doc.
