Join us on Wednesday, February 14, at 10:00 am PT, for a conversation with this year’s Getting Real Programmers, Meghan Monsour and Lisa Valencia-Svensson, along with Getting Real and IDA’s Director of Artists Programs, Abby Sun, about Getting Real ‘24, their programming vision, and an early preview of this year’s conference.
The biennial Getting Real conference is set to celebrate its tenth anniversary as North America’s largest peer-to-peer gathering of non-fiction filmmakers and practitioners in April 15-18, 2024, in person in Los Angeles and virtually worldvide. Getting Real has historically attracted major industry players, fostering face-to-face interactions between filmmakers and influential figures, including streaming platforms and funding agencies around a specific theme in each iteration. The conference is set up to foster a collaborative and interconnected community for documentary filmmakers and their audiences.
The theme for the 2024 conference is Transitions: Strategy, Networks, Access; emphasizing a holistic approach to the life cycle of documentaries, the conference aims to highlight the importance of filmmakers accessing institutions, people, spaces, and resources collectively. It addresses the challenges of limited resources within documentary filmmaking infrastructures and advocates for creating and sustaining networks that connect filmmakers across physical and digital boundaries.
