"We are so much more than our voices. We are our choices." This was just one takeaway from several of the top voiceover artists in the Washington DC region when they came together to speak at a Documentary Roundtable in May 2016 about how documentary filmmakers can work with talent.

Every other month, the WIFV/Docs In Progress Documentary Roundtable welcomes filmmakers and industry experts to discuss topics of interest to the documentary filmmaking community. On February 9, 2015, we welcomed three speakers to talk about how documentary filmmakers can navigate the world of public television. The speakers were Kathryn Washington (CPB), Robyn DeShields (DeShields Associates), and Ramona Diaz (independent filmmaker). The following are notes I made from the presentation.
Because of COVID 19, these events will be delivered via Zoom.
The Documentary Roundtable is a monthly program co-hosted by Docs In Progress and Women in Film and Video. Trailer Night is focused on peer feedback and includes time for networking. As an antidote to the documentary filmmaker working in isolation, it’s a brainstorming, networking, and support group all wrapped up in one. This is an opportunity to meet others in the documentary community; share your latest successes, challenges, and tips on documentary filmmaking; and provide feedback to several filmmakers on their trailers or scenes.
Trailer Night has gone virtual during Covid times and is free to the public.
