EyeSteelFilm Retrospective

(2017)

Montreal-based film collective EyeSteelFilm, led by founder Daniel Cross, are featured this year in the most expansive retrospective ever at Big Sky. EyeSteelFilm originated through making films with the homeless community. Their original films provided a template for using engaged cinéma-vérité and interactivity for empowerment and change. EyeSteelFilm has branched out to make films on diverse, compelling topics across the globe and is home to a community of committed documentary filmmakers. Filmmakers in attendance include Ryan Mullins, Mia Donovan, Bob Moore and Val Shamash as well as Daniel Cross who will present a master class at DocShop on Friday, February 24. Co-Founder Mila Aung-Thwin will be world premiering LET THERE BE LIGHT.
