Rough Cut: Editing + Distribution

Activities and Events

The ROUGH CUT is an in-depth lab that brings together the maker of a nearly completed documentary with a world-class panel of experts. This year, Dan Popa, the director of Symphony in Aquamarine, will present a rough cut of the film. The panel will include festival and television programmers who will provide a detailed critique of the film at this crucial stage, and discuss appropriate distribution strategies. They will also explore the influence and effects of international markets on the process of developing and producing a film.
