Discovering Documentary: Tools for Educators, Filmmakers, and Astute Viewers

If you would like to participate in this one-of-a-kind class that Salem Film Fest is partnering on with Montserrat College of Art – you must act now!

Do you wish for a deeper understanding of documentary film? Or for a community of people who share your cinematic interests? Are you an educator looking for new ways to inform and inspire your students? This course spends one day in the classroom with an introduction to the documentary genre, from origins to the latest trends, and a practical overview of how to use documentary film in educational or community settings. Day Two is spent at the Salem Film Fest, an all-documentary film festival in downtown Salem, MA, where participants will see and discuss in-depth at least two films. This course is appropriate for educators, film enthusiasts, and those looking for an enhanced film festival-going experience. No prerequisites required!

Erin Trahan, journalist and Editor of The Independent, will lead the class, which includes an all-day pass to SFF 2014 and is eligible for 15 PDPs for educators – Mention you’re a SFF supporter and get $25 off the registration fee – to find out more visit
