Turning Biographical Documentaries into Feature Films

About the Workshop

Telling the story of a person’s life using a documentary approach could be the stepping stone to making it into a narrative feature film. Learn the case-study of how the true life story of World War II Holocaust survivor, Anita Dittman became a book, then a documentary, and is now in development as a movie. Anita was a teenager who escaped twice from Nazi prison as she fought to reunite with her mother sent far away at a death camp. We’ll show you how to option story material, make it into a documentary, then package it as a feature film.
