Application Deadline // Documentary Storytelling Workshop


Screenwriters, filmmakers, and documentarians—the Moving Picture Institute's 13-week, virtual Documentary Storytelling screenwriting workshop kicks off in January and will meet weekly through April.

Led by MPI executive vice presidents, Erin O’Connor and Maurice Black, this workshop is for documentary filmmakers who wish to move beyond the “talking head” format. Participants will learn how to “find the story” in the footage, how to develop character, how to craft compelling story arcs, and how to strike an honest, compelling balance between story and argument.

Applications are due January 2, 2019. Click here to apply.
