Masterclasses and DOKLeipzig Films on DocAlliance

Again and again DocAlliance, “Your Online Documentary Cinema”, brings quality to its users, who are hopefully many. This time a series of filmed masterclasses from the Jihlava 2014 festival. I visited one of them last year, the one with Wojtiech Staron, which was great, take that or always interesting Godfrey Reggio. For free until tomorrow included. Then you can pay the small fees that DocAlliance operates with and/or go to watch films from DOKLeipzig, for free from this coming Monday October 19 until November 1st. The offer includes a slate of animated documentaries, one of many specialities at the Leipzig festival:

Watch films such as Still Born (winner of the Golden Dove award for the best animated film at DOK Leipzig 2014) and other films oscillating between an intimate and political message in a unique animated form: Counting Days and Years, Broken Branches, Amerykanka. All included, The Predicate and the Poppy, T’s World: The Over-identification of Terry Thompson.

And links to the masterclasses connected to the names of the directors: presents master classes of leading filmmakers who attended Jihlava IDFF in the past year. The directors whose film lectures you can watch until October 18 include Spanish enfant terrible Albert Serra (winner of Locarno IFF among others), respected American filmmaker Deborah Stratman, Austrian master of found footage Peter Tscherkassky, famous director of the Qatsi trilogy Godfrey Reggio (PHOTO), Filipino independent filmmaker Kidlat Tahimik and Polish cinematographer and director Wojciech Staroń.
