True/False Film Fest and Catapult announce Rough Cut Retreat
Catapult Film Fund and the True/False Film Fest are presenting the second year of the Rough Cut Retreat, a four-day workshop intended to bring together filmmakers and mentors in a creative and engaged atmosphere.
Each year, five filmmakers with in-progress projects are paired with mentors to take their rough cut to a fine cut with an eye toward fall festival deadlines. Mentors are hand-picked for their editorial strength and generosity of spirit.
Rough Cut Retreat provides filmmakers with dedicated time to focus on post-production and receive invaluable feedback from other filmmakers.
“It was hugely gratifying to see the projects from last year’s retreat turn out so beautifully and make their way into festivals,” said Lisa Chanoff, co-founder of the Catapult Film Fund. “At Catapult we love helping projects get off the ground. We are thrilled to partner again with True/False to help take films across the finish line.”
