DOCSHOP is a five-day filmmaker's forum and gathering place that takes place every year during The Big Sky Documentary Film Festival (BSDFF). The conference is geared towards filmmakers, innovators, students, and media industry leaders to explore cutting-edge ideas that are shaping the field of documentary film today. The conference includes workshops and panels that cover diverse aspects of the filmmaking process, and culminates with the Big Sky Pitch, an opportunity for filmmakers to pitch works-in-progress to a panel of industry representatives and funders. The festival-conference energy creates a unique and fruitful experience for emerging and award-winning filmmakers alike.
Every year we choose a vibrant conversation evolving in the industry. The workshops and panels for DocShop 2017 will focus on all aspects of creating the short: conceiving, funding, producing and distributing. The significance and gravitas of short films is changing - both online and onscreen. With changes in technology and how we consume media, short films have reached an unprecedented number of viewers and are affecting culture and inciting change at viral speed. BSFI will open a call for workshops and presenters the fall of 2016, and publish our schedule in late 2016. The Big Sky DocShop runs from February 20th - 24th 2017.
