Rough Cuts at The Lab

Open call for entries


Rough Cuts is a series of work-in-progress documentary screenings that are produced every other month at The LAB. Each evening one rough cut of a feature-length documentary will be screened, followed by a moderated conversation about the film led by guests who are either accomplished filmmakers or established film professionals. These post-screening discussions are designed to give the filmmaker a better, more objective sense of what is working and not working with his/her film, with particular attention paid to improving the film’s structure and narrative clarity. We hope that the series also provides a welcome space for local filmmakers, film professionals, and fans of documentary film to meet and talk.

The LAB is currently accepting submissions for the June series. There is a $10 submission fee, payable to The LAB. To be considered, you must fill out the Rough Cuts application (Click here to download). Submissions must arrive by 5:00 p.m., Wednesday May 21st. Selections will be announced on Wednesday, May 28th.
