Upcoming Event: Alan Berliner Comes Back for Master Class on Proposals and More
Next Tuesday, Alan Berliner comes back to News Doc for another exciting Master Class. As the class of 2017 gets set to embark on their thesis film journey, Berliner will help set the students straight with a workshop on how to write proposals. This follows the two hour proposal session of Tom Jennings last week.
“Berliner’s experimental documentary films, First Cousin Once Removed (2013), Wide Awake(2006), The Sweetest Sound (2001), Nobody’s Business (1996), Intimate Stranger (1991), and The Family Album (1986), have been broadcast all over the world, and received awards, prizes, and retrospectives at many major international film festivals. The San Francisco International Film Festival called Berliner, “America’s foremost cinematic essayist.” The Florida Film Festival called him “the modern master of personal documentary filmmaking.” Over the years, Berliner’s films have become part of the core curriculum for documentary filmmaking and film history classes at universities worldwide, and are in the permanent collections of many film societies, festivals, libraries, colleges and museums. All of his films are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.”
