I'm a teacher, documentary filmmaker, award winning producer, and a member of the documentary selection committee for Florida Film Festival. I love documentaries, but not the PBS/DISCOVERY CHANNEL/ HISTORY CHANNEL type. Not that there is ANYTHING wrong with those, but my tastes fall more towards the gritty, personal, raw stories that take the audience on an emotional journey. Having said that, my work with the Florida Film Festival has shaped my view on what works and what doesn't work in documentary. I could not be prouder of the doc choices we have made (these last five years) and I could not be prouder of the Florida Film Festival/ Enzian Theater in general - a cultural arts organization that is a true class act.
