This film screning is part of NCG's 2012 Documentary Film Series for Grantmakers. Learn more >>
NCG, working in partnership with The San Francisco Foundation and Cal Humanities, has launched a new Documentary Film Series this year. The series provides members with an opportunity to experience some of the most celebrated documentaries to come out of the Bay Area, and at the same time learn about how to use film as an alternative and powerful medium for promoting their missions.
NCG's Documentary Series will showcase the work of our region's filmmakers as well as demonstrate how this genre extends into so many different sectors—child welfare, education, disaster relief, healthcare, the environment—and in doing so delivers a whole host of stories directly and effectively.
Join us for a multi-media interactive presentation of the Lunch Love Community transmedia documentary about the Berkeley School Lunch Initiative and how citizens came together to create environmental change through food systems reform. Along with viewing specific "webisodes," the directors, Helen De Michiel and Sophie Constantinou will present the experience of creating the film as an open space documentary project and what this demonstrates for the future of documentary distribution and audience impact.
Helen De Michiel and Sophie Constantinou are filmmakers based in the San Francisco Bay Area. De Michiel is the founder of Thirty Leaves Production and a producer, writer and director who has created work for television and museums; multimedia installations, feature film, and several documentaries. Constantinou is a founder of Citizen Film, documentary producer, and director of photography.
