At the Film­mak­ers Forum on Sat­ur­day, many of the film­mak­ers for the fes­ti­val doc­u­men­taries will offer their per­spec­tive, share their sto­ries and answer ques­tions on the sub­jects of their films and film mak­ing in gen­er­al.

We will also be host­ing a Kidz Cin­e­ma on Sat­ur­day after­noon with a spe­cial selec­tion of doc­u­men­tary films and shorts either about kids or of par­tic­u­lar inter­est to kids.
