We are excited to announce the 8 film projects selected to be part of the 2009 Content + Intent Documentary Institute, Working Films’ Residency at MASS MoCA. We reviewed a number of extraordinary projects and faced a difficult decision narrowing it down to the 8 films that will be part of the residency, which takes place March 11-15th in North Adams, MA.
Of the many amazing entries we selected those projects that we believe have the greatest potential to benefit from a collaborative workshop focused on creating intentional and strategic audience engagement; factors under consideration included submitted film footage, the written application and the diversity of subjects and timeliness of the issues. The following are the films selected and the members of the filmmaking team that will be representing each project:
The Campaign, Christie Herring
Cape Wind, Robbie Gemmel
In the Balance, Ashley York and Susana Ruiz
Land of Opportunity, Luisa Dantas
Made in India, Rebecca Haimowitz and Vaishali Sinha
New Muslim Cool, Jennifer Maytorena Taylor
Speaking in Tongues, Marcia Jarmel
Split Estate, Debra Anderson
We will announce more information on the program and Projections Film Forum shortly.
