What We Do In The Shadows: The Role of the Doc Producer

Mar 10, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Producers are an integral, yet often overlooked, part of the creative and business team for independent documentary films. Their influence ranges from story development, to the edit, to the sale, positioning, and marketing of a film. So why don’t we hear more about what Documentary Producers do? This conversation will feature three producers of documentary films premiering at SXSW 2024, each with a varying degree of experience, from the emerging to the veteran. We will look into the process and experiences of these producers as they helped craft the films they are presenting.
