New for 2013, Meet the Insiders is an opportunity to participate in vital discussions on the innovations and developments in the world of film across varying topics. Moderators will start by introducing and getting to know the Insider for the first 10 minutes, but the next 20 are an open forum where the audience is able to ask questions, discuss trends, connect with the film community, and gain insight and understanding of the industry from the insiders at the forefront of their respective fields.
Moderated by documentary filmmaker and UT RTF Chair Paul Stekler, get the inside track from successful documentary filmmakers working today. Hear first hand about their process, first from Al Reinert, director of SXSW 2013 film An Unreal Dream: The Story of Michael Morton and second from Jeanie Finlay, director of SXSW 2013 film The Great Hip Hop Hoax and get the chance to discuss and ask questions about the challenges they've faced as filmmakers and their future plans.
