Indie Review

Indie Review is a work in progress documentary screening series, created in partnership between KQED Presents and the DocFilm Institute at San Francisco State University. Each event invites members of the documentary filmmaking community of the San Francisco Bay Area to come together, screen a rough cut of a documentary and then ask questions of and offer advice to the filmmaker whose film was showcased at the event.
