NYWIFT is proud to present a FREE one-time Saturday production workshop on Saturday, May 20th, 2017 taught by Third World Newsreel for girls and women of all ages (15+) who are immigrants or first-generation Americans. This workshop is a part of Women Filmmakers: Immigrant Stories 2017, and will focus on teaching the basics of documentary story telling and production. Over the course of the one-day workshop, participants will create their own short group documentary.
The workshop will take place at Maspeth Town Hall located at 5337 72nd St Maspeth, NY 11378 from 10am-6pm. Food will be provided.
Topics covered in this workshop include:
• Camera techniques
• Executing interviews

By the end of this workshop, participants will have a basic understanding of the fundamentals of video production and will have shot a mini-documentary. Participants are also invited to work on the editing of the projects with the Third World Newsreel production teachers.
