The 2021 Creative Nonfiction Workshop
Join us for a deep dive into creative nonfiction filmmaking through a series of livestreams with pairs of boundary-pushing nonfiction filmmakers through the summer. The event is ticketed.
About Lockdown Film School
With #LockdownFilmSchool, we’re trying to connect the film community during trying times, while also highlighting the work of some of our favourite film artists. The “school” will convene every Sunday, and beforehand we’ll send you “homework” (a watchlist of amazing movies).
How Lockdown Film School Works
You sign up (it’s completely free), then each Sunday at 5pm ET, we’ll invite you to an hour-long Zoom call. There, we will facilitate a discussion between two brilliant filmmakers in the same field, and you can ask them questions in real time.
We’re no longer running the series weekly, but we will be doing one-off sessions from time to time, starting in October 2020. Stay tuned for future announcements.
Watch the recordings of past sessions
Sign up for the lockdown film school, and we’ll send you a link to join the live stream via Zoom. If you join via Zoom, you can ask your questions face-to-face with our guests. If that’s too much of a hassle, you can tune in via YouTube where we’ll be live-streaming the event.
Zoom is a free web conferencing and webinar program. You can download it for free for your desktop, tablet, or phone here.
Yes! A recording will be available on the Seventh Row YouTube channel after the fact. We’ll link to all of them from this page under the “Past Events” section.
You can email us your questions in advance at contact [at] seventh-row [dot] com or tweet us @SeventhRow. We’ll also be accepting questions live in response to the facilitated discussion so you can ask questions during the livestream, too.
The live streams are absolutely free!
We have guests booked until the end of July, and we plan to continue until at least the end of August.
