I banded together with three other New Haven filmmakers to put on a joint presentation/celebration of our documentaries. This page will link to the website that Gorman Bechard put together for us: www.nhdocs.com. The irony is that Gorman’s wife manages the coffee shop half a block from my office and he is often there–but somehow we never met until both our documentaries were accepted by the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival. Below is the postcard image, which he also designed.
the BBQ we threw for those loyal souls who came to see our docs. We gave them a break between the third and four pictures. It was a lovely summer evening in the Timothy Dwight College courtyard.
Afterwards we went back to the WHC auditorium to screen our final documentary of the day, Gorman Bechard’s Every Everything: The Life and Time of Grant Hart. Followed by a Q & A.
Organizing the screenings was a great way for the four of us to connect and also a nice way to meet some documentary fans (and some documentary filmmakers) in the area.
The sad reality is that Lisa Molomot and her husband Jacob Bricca left the next day for Arizona where they have jobs teaching filmmaking at Arizona State. But Gorman and I are planning to make NHdocs an annual event!
