"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.
Almost every month, Docs In Progress and Women in Film and Video-DC co-host the Documentary Roundtable. Usually held on the second Monday of every month (except when holidays conflict), these free meetings switch between Washington DC and Silver Spring. The Washington DC meetings organized by WIFV are focused on receiving expert advice on topics related to documentary filmmaking while the Silver Spring meetings organized by Docs In Progress are focused on peer feedback, often a presentation and review of a director's 'Trailer'.
Documentary Roundtable meetings are free for members of WIFV or Docs Premium Insiders. There is a $10 fee for the general public.
