DOC TALK December: Master Class with John Zaritsky

DOC TALK: A series of relevant, engaging and informative workshops & discussions, presented monthly by DOC BC

It is impossible to explain, outline, or even list John Zaritsky’s impressive filmmaking achievements in this small text box. We would need a notebook.

Some of the highlights of his extensive and illustrious career include winning more than 30 awards for his documentary films. This includes the Academy Award for Best Documentary for Just Another Missing Kid, a Cable Ace Award for Rapists: Can They be Stopped, an American Bar Association Golden Gavel Award for My Husband is Going to Kill Me, and a
Robert F. Kennedy Foundation Award for Born in Africa. In addition to the above, John has been nominated for three Emmy Awards and 15 Gemini Awards, and has won the latter seven times. His most recent film, Leave Them Laughing, screened at the 2010 Vancouver International Film Festival where it won the most popular Canadian documentary.

DOC BC is honoured to present this unique opportunity to spend an evening with Mr. Zaritsky. This is a night not to be missed!

Mr. Zaritsky will engage in stories and illustrations about his remarkable work, share tips and techniques about how he conducts interviews and structures his films & talk about documentary filmmaking in the industry as it exists today.

Please join us on December 8th, 2010 at 6:30pm for this exceptional master class. Admission is free for DOC BC members. Non-members’ admission $15 at the door. UPDATE: If you purchase your 2011 DOC BC membership at the workshop, admission is free.
