SDF Artists Convening: Spring Showcase 

When: Sun., June 11, 2:30 p.m. 2017
Price: $10

Incubated by the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, Duke's MFA in experimental and documentary arts, and a wealth of local talent and subjects, Durham is a hotbed of filmmaking, which the Southern Documentary Fund plays a big role in fiscally and professionally supporting. For the fourth year, the developing tradition of its annual Artists Convening brings together scores of filmmakers from around the country for three days of panels and workshops. While the main track is geared toward industry professionals, there's also programming aimed at a general audience. This year it includes a master class with Emmy-nominated filmmaker Carlos Sandoval (Saturday, June 10, $10) and this showcase of works-in-progress by local documentarians receiving SDF support. Always in Season explores the aftereffects of the lynching of African Americans; Farmsteaders examines the plight of family farms; When I Breathe, I Hope covers Bakari Sellers's effort to crack the race barrier in South Carolina's state government; and The Last Partera delves into midwifery in Costa Rica (disclosure: the film is directed by INDY food editor Victoria Bouloubasis). See them before they hit festivals, and shape them with your feedback in a post-screening Q and A. —Brian Howe
