FILMMAKERS IN ATTENDANCE – This Salem Film Fest Sneak Peek brings you behind the frontlines! We’ll screen scenes straight out of the edit room from an upcoming FRONTLINE episode and engage in a revealing discussion that takes you deep inside the filmmaking process. Award winning documentary filmmaker Michael Kirk (LEAGUE OF DENIAL; MONEY, POWER AND WALL STREET) and FRONTLINE’s senior editor Steve Audette join the series’ Executive Producer David Fanning and Deputy Executive Producer Raney Aronson-Rath to present clips from their upcoming two-hour FRONTLINE special. We can’t tell you the subject but you’ll really want to watch this…it’s already watching you.
Before the screenings and discussion we will present the first Michael Sullivan FRONTLINE Award for Journalism in a Documentary Film to the SFF film that best reflects the journalistic values of this flagship PBS public affairs series.
