  • “Community Conversations” Film Series — new touring program for 2019

    The Film Collaborative is pleased to announce the Community Conversations Film Series, a touring program for filmmakers in response to the National Endowment for the Arts’ published report “State of the Field: A Report from the Documentary Sustainability Summit.” This program is being supported by a $20,000 grant from the NEA. The series will bring filmmakers, local communities, colleges and universities together to view films from a selection of curated works and participate in facilitated group discussions.

    The Film Collaborative will run the Community Conversations program with curation consulting provided by New Day Films. Projects by filmmakers from diverse backgrounds, cultures and political perspectives will be selected and the filmmakers will travel to schools and other program partners in Ohio, Wisconsin and Texas during the 2019-2020 school year.

  • Congratulations to festival titles Our Time Machine and Gay Chorus Deep South on their respective Jury and Audience awards at Tribeca 2019.

  • We are thrilled to announce that, as promised, our new and improved Digital Distribution Guide (DDG)—which was once only available to TFC members—is now in BETA and available to everybody.

    We split the guide into two parts: (a) the Digital Distribution Guide (DDG), which is platform-focused, and divided into narratives, docs, shorts and episodic; and (b) the TFC Digital Distribution Guide Facebook Group, for general news in the digital distribution space. Both parts feature select news items from the original guide dating back to 2010, when TFC was founded!

    This new guide is meant to be an ever-evolving space, with new information added continually. It is in BETA to iron out the technical kinks and round out the content (especially in the international sections, and in the shorts and episodic tabs)— but we couldn’t wait to share it with you! And of course, if you have any feedback, we’d love to hear from you!

    The permanent link is digitaldistributionguide.com.
