Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse
Bay Area documentary filmmakers expose contemporary and historical injustices at home and abroad and spotlight the work of unknown or forgotten artists and activists. Each session will feature a new or recent one-hour film followed by a candid, in-person conversation with the director. We’ll focus on the practical, financial, creative, and ethical aspects of crafting documentaries, from conception through editing to broadcast and distribution.
