Five Revealing Documentaries about
The Art of Filmmaking

Included are:

Tales from the Script

Screenwriters ranging from newcomers to living legends share their triumphs and hardships in this probing, insightful, and often hilarious odyssey through the world of movie storytelling. By analyzing their triumphs and recalling their failures, the participants explain how successful writers develop the skills necessary for toughing out careers in Hollywood.

FEATURING: Shane Black (Lethal Weapon), John Carpenter (Halloween), Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption), William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid), David Hayter (X-Men), Bruce Joel Rubin (Ghost), Paul Schrader (Raging Bull & Taxi Driver), Ron Shelton (Bull Durham), David S. Ward (The Sting) and many more.

Directors: Life Behind the Camera

Made in cooperation with the American Film Institute, Directors: Life Behind the Camera features thirty-three legendary directors who reveal intimate and in-depth knowledge about the art of filmmaking and, as well, their own career in the movies. Culled from over 300 hours of interviews, this two-disc, four hour presentation is interactive, allowing instant access to a single director, or access to an entire topic involving all directors.

FEATURING: Robert Altman, Robert Benton, Tim Burton, James Cameron, Chris Columbus, Wes Craven, Cameron Crowe, Frank Darabont, Jonathan Demme, Richard Donner, Clint Eastwood, Nora Ephron, William Friedkin, Terry Gilliam, Ron Howard, Lawrence Kasdan, Spike Lee, Barry Levinson, George Lucas, David Lynch, Adrian Lyne, Garry Marshall, Penny Marshall, Sydney Pollack, Rob Reiner, Martin Scorsese, Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Bryan Singer, Steven Spielberg, Oliver Stone, Robert Zemeckis & David Zucker

Light Keeps Me Company

Twice an Oscar Winner and considered one of the foremost cinematographers in the history of film, Sven Nykvist was best known for his work with Ingmar Bergman, with whom he created some of the most important films of modern cinema.

Lovingly directed by his son Carl-Gustaf, Light Keeps Me Company includes film clips, rare home movies, family photographs, behind-the-scenes footage, and interviews with some of the legends who worked with him, including Ingmar Bergman, Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, Liv Ullman, Susan Sarandon, and others.

Capturing Reality: The Art of Documentary

From cinema-vérité pioneers Albert Maysles and Joan Churchill to maverick moviemakers like Errol Morris, Werner Herzog and Nick Broomfield, the world's best documentarians reflect upon the unique power of their genre in this comprehensive and eye-opening film.

Featuring interviews with 38 directors and film clips from classics such as Grey Gardens and The Thin Blue Line, as well as recent work like Darwin's Nightmare and Touching the Void, Capturing Reality explores the complex creative process that goes into making non-fiction films.

Lavender Limelight: Lesbians in Film

From Go Fish to Paris is Burning, this festival favorite goes behind the scenes to reveal seven successful lesbian directors. These talented movie-makers enlighten and entertain as they explore their sexual identity, growing up gay, inspirations and techniques, Hollywood vs. Indie, and of course, love and sex, onscreen and off.

Featuring Cheryl Dunye, Rose Troche, Jennie Livingston, Monika Treut, Maria Maggenti, Su Friedrich and Heather MacDonald.
