The Director-Producer Partnership: Conversations with CRIP CAMP & THE MOLE AGENT



Recorded live on Wed, Apr 21, 2021


DOC NYC PRO, in partnership with the Documentary Producers Alliance 2021 initiative #ProducersAreFilmmakersToo, explores the magic of the producer-director relationship in this 90-minute panel featuring the Oscar-nominated teams behind CRIP CAMP and THE MOLE AGENT.


In a moderated panel discussion, we'll uncover the necessary steps film teams must take--from the very beginning--as they create a director-producer partnership that can withstand the trials and triumphs of a multi-year film production and release. We'll explore the secrets to sustaining a fruitful film "marriage": from development to production, and throughout the rigors of the festival and awards circuits. And we'll discuss the importance of uplifting and crediting the critical work of producers in an industry that has historically shone the brightest spotlight on directors. We're joined by CRIP CAMP director-producers Nicole Newnham and Jim LeBrecht and producer Sara Bolder, and MOLE AGENT director Maite Alberdi, producer Marcela Santibáñez, and executive producer Julie Goldman. The panel discussion will include a 30-minute moderated Q&A. Live captioning will be provided.
