PANEL: TRUTH BE TOLD |11:00am

Four Leaves Winery | 528 Main Ave.

Free and open to the public; seating is limited.

The adventure of making a documentary can take surprising turns along the way, often altering the course of the final story and leaving both filmmaker and subject changed forever. This panel will host a few of the documentary filmmakers showcased at this year’s festival. They will investigate the process of capturing the truth for the camera and some of the other truths that are left unsaid due to ethical, moral or creative considerations.

What is it like to be an actor when the cameras are off? We will sit down with agent Carissa Mitchell, actor John Rubano, and others to learn more about the path to becoming an actor, finding talent, keeping busy, and what it takes to keep building a career in entertainment.

Sunday, March 3

PANEL:
BLOODY SUNDAY: STORIES FROM THE FRONT
LINES OF FILMMAKING  | 11:00am

Four Leaves Winery | 528 Main Ave.

Free and open to the public; seating is limited.

It seems straightforward: have an idea, write a script, gather a few friends, a little money and a camera, and make your movie. Then the process of filmmaking kicks in, and often the best intentions turn toward the road less traveled or a pathway to hell. The filmmakers of this panel share their heartfelt and hilarious stories behind the scenes of what it really takes to make a movie from start to finish. Bloody Marys may be required to numb the pain but you should go to the Animas City Theatre and catch a festival film to get one.
