Award-winning filmmaker reflects on IRP documentary workshop

IRP-Professional-Workshop-secondary-2

Yoav Potash, whose film, Crime After Crime premiered at Sundance, won a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, and was a New York Times critic pick, was unsure about going to the IRP’s Professional Workshop for Independent Filmmakers at first. As a filmmaker who never went to journalism or film school, Potash wanted to deepen his investigative skills and meet other professionals in his field. At the workshop, Potash was thankful for the journalism skills taught to him by Lowell Bergman and other instructors. Potash writes,”It is the only program centered on applying the best practices of investigative journalism to documentary film.” You can read his full story here.
