I have been a film programmer in the past but am new at producing documentary films, my favorite genre. I met Erica from Docs in Progress at a Creative Alliance program in Baltimore and knew immediately that this was the organization that would be incredibly helpful to my learning curve. And so it has been. I recently attended a presentation at Docs in Progress and besides being full of usable information from three top notch presenters, it was also incredibly inspiring to sit in a room of other documentary filmmakers. I felt like I found a place to ask questions, to exchange ideas and information and, most importantly, to learn. i had found "my tribe." I look forward to fully participating in Docs in Progress and am exceedingly grateful for this wonderful organization. Also, I took the MARC train and subway from Baltimore to the SIlver Spring to the program. So, I really appreciate that it's located near the metro station.

Have a branch in Baltimore.! Okay, that is self-serving...and I know not likely. But the good news is that I will have a car soon.
