THE LAB Open Call- Rough Cuts

OPEN CALL – ROUGH CUTS
November series

The LAB is seeking feature-length works with a final running time of 50 minutes or longer. Principal photography should have been completed, and we encourage filmmakers to submit cuts that are in the later stages of post-production (i.e. NOT first or second cuts).

Wednesday October 22nd: Submissions must arrive at the Lab by 5:00 p.m.
Wednesday, October 29th: Selections will be announced.
Monday, November 10th and Tuesday, November 11th: Screenings, followed by discussions led by guest moderators

Rough Cuts is a series of work-in-progress documentary screenings that are produced every other month at the LAB, a non-profit gallery/performance space in the Mission. For each evening, we screen one rough cut of a feature-length documentary and then moderate a conversation about the film. 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.
