Documentary Filmmaker Retreat
August 26 – 28 join the Seattle Documentary Association for DocForest, a documentary filmmaker's retreat at the Kitsap Forest Theater. The weekend retreat – formerly known as DocFarm – will be filled with guided peer-to-peer workshops, documentary films, camaraderie, bonfires, and great food. Recharge your creative spirit at this breath-taking environment in the woods!
The weekend kickoffs Friday evening with a Happy Hour followed by Rapid Recharge – an event where we show YOUR favorite, brain tingling, jaw dropping, inspiring clips. We will show five minutes of any genre of film you bring!
During workshops discover the myths of distribution; practice pitching your dream project and honing your idea; and explore the ethics of documentary filmmaking and the elements of storytelling.
Bring SHORT CLIPS for our Saturday evening Works-in-Progress (no longer than 10 minutes) and for our Rapid Recharge event on Friday (no longer than 5 minutes).
DocForest events end Sunday at 2pm so you'll have plenty of time to continue to enjoy this historic site and head home.
Sleeping accommodations are available on site where you can bunk with other people in the cabin or bring a tent and camp. If you prefer to sleep offsite there are hotels nearby.
Tickets include the following chef catered meals: Friday Happy Hour; Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner; and Sunday breakfast and lunch.
