This program is a joint effort between Docs In Progress and Women in Film and Video-DC. Programs alternate between Docs In Progress in Silver Spring and Interface Media in Washington, DC. Roundtables at Docs In Progress are a combination of networking, support group, and trailer feedback. Roundtables at Interface feature guest experts on topics of interest to documentary filmmakers. All Documentary Roundtable meetings are open to the public. This is a great way to get to know others in the DC-area documentary filmmaking community, build your network and know-how, and find out about other offerings of these two organizations.

 

About the Speaker

Dana Flor is a documentary director and producer based in Washington DC. Teamed up with Toby Oppenheimer, she co-directed and produced CHECK IT, as well as THE NINE LIVES OF MARION BARRY, a feature length documentary about the  late mayor of Washington DC. That film aired on HBO and played Closing Night at the 2009 Silverdocs Film Festival. Flor also wrote and directed the Emmy award-winning documentary LATINOS IN BEISBOL and the Emmy-nominated documentary CESAR CHAVEZ for NBC. She works on a wide range of stories for Reuters Television, CNN, National Geographic, and others, covering breaking news and producing in-depth features throughout Latin America and around the world.

She and Oppenheimer are currently working on a feature-length film about Randall Terry, the Koran-burning, anti-abortion, anti-gay, pro-Tea Party founder of Operation Rescue and his extraordinary family made up of staunchly feminist aunts, an adopted African-American gay activist son, and a Muslim convert daughter.
