In the past year, the documentary film community has faced a number of hotbutton issues, including changes to the Academy’s Oscar requirements for documentaries, the battle between the MPAA and Lee Hirsch’s BULLY, the arrest of Joshua Fox (GASLAND) when he tried to film a subcommittee hearing on hydraulic fracturing and more. Join us on this panel where we tackle some of today’s most compelling “hot topics” affecting the documentary community.

The two-day Hackathon event will give pre-selected documentary filmmakers the chance to collaborate with creative technologists to develop a functioning prototype of an original web documentary. Sponsored by the Living Docs project (Mozilla, ITVS, Tribeca Film Institute, BAVC and the Center for Social Media), the Silverdocs Hackathon will add a new dimension - public data. The behind-the-scenes Hackathon will be followed by a public panel discussion featuring the Hackathon teams as well as representatives from Mozilla who will offer brief presentations of their most cutting edge projects, as well as reveal the in-the-works prototypes of the participating documentary filmmakers – and the creative process that got them there.
Thursday, June 21 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
