Ben, Angelica, Sean and Samara were on the ground in New York City for the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival, where four Points North alumni premiered their feature documentaries after workshopping.
The festival weekend kicked off with a Nonfiction Happy Hour, organized with our friends at DCTV. Thanks to everyone from the documentary community who joined! Here are some pictures from the event.
Congrats to all the Points North alumni, whose films have been very well received by audiences and press since their premieres. We are proud to have been part of your creative journeys!
THE SENSITIVES (2013 Points North Fellow) in No Film School:
“Tribeca Film Festival programmers… described Drew Xanthopoulos’ film as one of the most cinematic documentaries they’d ever seen.”
THE REAGAN SHOW (2014 Points North Fellow, 2015 Camden/TFI Retreat) in Filmmaker Magazine:
“as clever and breathtaking a look at the performative aspects of our politics as any film made in recent memory, and perhaps ever; it deserves a big audience when CNN airs it in the fall.”
THE FAMILY I HAD (2015 Points North Fellow, 2016 Camden/TFI Retreat) review in The Young Folks:
“one the most harrowing portrayals of the self-destruction and tentative self-restoration of a southern American family this side of a William Faulkner novel.”
NO MAN’S LAND (2016 Camden/TFI Retreat) in Indiewire:
“’No Man’s Land’ is an authoritative look at this remarkable story, but it also gives tremendous insight to the anger of rural Americans and their desire for Washington to be turned upside down.”
