Northwest Filmmakers' Un-conference

Page history last edited by Thomas Phillipson 8 years, 4 months ago







NOVEMBER 8, 2014


Seems to be a good idea, these fimmakers' BarCamps, so of course we would like to have another, our seventh, on Saturday November 8, 2014— corresponding with the 41st Northwest Filmmakers Festival (November 7-15).

For those of you who did participate, the next BarCamp will be much like the rest.  For those new to the BarCamp world, welcome to a user-generated un-conference organized for and by filmmakers like yourself.  This is an opportunity to meet and share information with scores of experts and foragers alike.  Take a look at the schedule board from a previous un-conference to see the kinds of topics that were discussed and then imagine a roomful of whipsmart filmmakers thinktanking the issues and sharing best practices and scary roads to avoid.  It's fun, it's lively, and it's the best way we could ever imagine to get our wildly talented and creative film community (that's you) to help each other and to help themselves with on the ground ideas and inspirations you can plug right into your next production. Remember, user-generated means just that you are needed to help organize the event and you decide how it all comes together.



Add your name to the list of participants (toward the bottom of the page) by clicking “Edit page”

You will be asked to register with wiki—the password is: c4mp

Important note:  If you prefer not to receive e-mails every time a BarCamp page is edited, go to: https://my.pbwiki.com/?p=home and adjust your preferences.


Once you have registered, you are logged in and will come to the edit page where you can add your name, title and contact info and also suggest a topic. You just type right onto the page and then click "save" at the bottom. If you have a topic you would like to present, just add your name behind that topic.  It sounds a little scary to be fiddling with the web page, but know that I save versions of it often so if something goes wildly awry, just e-mail me and I should be able to sew it back up lickety-split.

If you are totally confounded, e-mail film@nwfilm.org  with the subject: UN-CONFERENCE
