Creating the Documentary: Nonfiction Storytelling


Thursday, January 31, 4:30 p.m.–6:00 p.m.
Filmmaker Lodge, 550 Main St. (2nd Floor)

Truth is stranger than fiction. But how do you turn that truth into a compelling narrative that moves an audience? Creating the Documentary focuses on how nonfiction storytellers find the story and craft it ... or does the story find them? This panel features filmmakers and educators from Syracuse University, including Professor Jeffrey Palmer (director, Words from a Bear; transmedia department at Syracuse University) and other Festival creators, including, Irene Taylor Brodsky (director, Moonlight Sonata: Deafness in Three Movements), and Liza Mandelup (director, Jawline). Moderated by Professor Tula Goenka (television, radio, and film department at Syracuse University).

Presented by Syracuse University
