Truly Independent Visions

Where better than a bowling alley for truly independent filmmakers to strike up a conversation about cinema outside the box? Bold, innovative, forward-thinking storytelling doesn’t just happen – it takes an active imagination and media technology that supports cinematic innovation. Join intrepid filmmakers who know that you have to throw a lot of gutter balls before you hit a strike. Filmmakers Sydney Freeland (Drunktown’s Finest), Charlie McDowell (The One I Love) and David Zellner (Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter) join Sundance Film Festival Senior Programmer David Courier to discuss what it takes to realize a truly independent vision.

Hybrid Vigour: When Music, Art and Documentary Collide:

From last year's Stories We Tell to the controversial The Act of Killing, the hybrid documentary is going from strength to convention-busting strength. But British documentary seems to be pushing the boundaries even further in challenging the genres of music, biography and archive film. Why is this and what does it tell us about the role of artists and musicians in documentary filmmaking? Join the creative partnerships behind three recent festival hits for an exploration of what went into stretching the limits of the form, an insight into the unusual collaborations between director and subject, and a look at the questions these films pose about memory, truth and the creative process. Panelists are: Jarvis Cocker and Martin Wallace, composer and director of The Big Melt; Edwyn Collins and Grace Maxwell, subjects of The Possibilities are Endless; Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, directors of 20,000 Days on Earth; Moderated by Tabitha Jackson, Director, Documentary Film Program, Sundance Institute. Presented in association with BRITDOC and Sheffield DocFest.
