This work-in-progress screening provides an opportunity for local and visiting documentary filmmakers to screen their unfinished films to an audience and get valuable feedback. After screening each film, facilitators from Docs In Progress moderate a feedback session with the audience. This honest and constructive feedback is aimed at helping the filmmakers get to the next stage of completing and distributing the film.  Special thanks to The Documentary Center at the George Washington University for sponsoring this program.
