Boris Mitić. The Entire Doc Film Industry Explained in 5 Drawings

Duration
90’

The documentary film world is a place that most of us enter unexpectedly and in which we spend either more or less time than we expected. Its confines are unpredictable and ever-shifting, leaving yesterday’s and tomorrow’s experts barren. But at the end of the day, there still are some twisted constants to it, nice and comforting, and nothing beats an illustrated humoristic approach in trying to present them.

 

Distilled from decade-long observation, anecdotized by first-hand experience and illustrated by top caricaturists and minimalistic designers, this uplifting, demystifying lecture will introduce you to the geopolitics of the documentary film industry, to the character archetypes that roam its landscapes, to the Mondrianesque nature of film financing and most importantly, to the author's very sarcastic Theory of Evolving Discourses.

 

Presented by Boris Mitić, a self-taught Serbian documentary filmmaker whose three films received 18 awards at 150+ festivals with broadcasts on over 20 TV channels. Boris is currently working on a documentary about Nothing, filmed by over 50 cinematographers from as many countries. He lectures globally on the realpolitik of documentary filmmaking and is jury member of this year's Docu/Life competition.
