I've given a number of film producing and pitching workshops at Docs-In-Progress and I'm extremely impressed with the work they do there and the caliber of people who participate. My only complaint is that they're based in Washington DC and I live in NYC, so I can't take better advantage of all the great programs they oversee.

Docs in Progress is a great resource for documentary filmmakers to work with established professionals to bring interesting, under-told stories to screens. Their mix of hands-on training with informative programs is a valuable resource for any mediamaker to hone their craft or fine tune their stories. Women in Film & Video looks for opportunities to work with the Docs in Progress staff to co-produce programs and we can always tell when one of their alumni attends a program because of their confidence.

My companies usual niche in the business is fictional independent movies. We went outside of our box and shot an in-house documentary in which we put lots of time and effort. After several edits we knew that something in the story flow was still not working at which time we called on Docs in Progress. Docs in Progress saved our documentary and story and took it to higher and better levels. Thank you Docs in Progress - we now have a wonderful story. Michelle Farrell "Unraveling Michelle"

Docs in Progress hosted the D-Word F2F at Silverdocs in 2009. They did a fantastic job, providing excellent facilities, and made the experience extra special with a great party. I look forward to another opportunity to visit the DocHouse!

Eight years ago, I was witness to a fascinating story in a small town that I wanted to document on film. The only problem was that I had no idea how to do that! That's how I became acquainted with Docs in Progress, an organization that brings together prospective filmmakers with expert storytellers, editors, buffs and supporters. It was a key moment, and over the years I have had numerous productive contacts with the organization - for consults, screenings, industry events and much more. Long story short: our little adventure turned into an Emmy award winning film that is now being used by grouips across the country to promote justice and equality. Docs in Progress has wonderful people, wonderful events, and a wonderful spirit. It ties stories to action. It's truly a treasure.
