Discussion and Book Signing: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life

Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)

5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 92656


At a time when art is increasingly viewed as a commodity and art-school graduates feel that gallery representation is imperative for making a living, it is more important than ever to show the reality of how an artist sustains a creative practice over time. The 40 essays collected in Living and Sustaining a Creative Life are written by artists in their own voices and take the form of narratives, statements, and interviews. Although each story is different and unique, the common thread is an ongoing commitment to creativity, both inside and outside the studio, that helps define what "success" means to a professional artist today.

Panelists include:

Shamim M. Momin, Director and Curator LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division)
Randy Sommer, Co-Owner ACME.
Timothy Nolan, Artist 
George Stoll, Artist
Alexandra Grant, Artist
Sharon Louden, Artist, Editor 

Named as one of the Top Art Books of 2013 by Hyperallergic, and already in its fourth printing in four months, Living and Sustaining a Creative Life unveils the mystery behind sustainable creativity. This event is part of a 45-stop book tour of town-hall forums all over the country.

International Documentary Association Presents Doc U: Distributing Your Doc, Part 1 – Theatrical Distributors & The Big Picture

Silent Movie Theater

611 N. Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, 90036

7:00pm to 8:30pm

The rapidly shifting landscape for theatrical distribution takes center stage in this month’s International Documentary Association’s Doc U, the first in a two-part series on “Distributing Your Doc.” The panel will cover a wide range of theatrical distributors, from the new players in the field to the more traditional companies, who continue to make their presence felt. This “deep dive” into theatrical distribution will explore in depth which theatrical models are being used, what kinds of documentaries distributors are looking for, how are deals being structured, and the ways distributors and filmmakers are working together with exhibitors to draw in audiences. With the recent explosion of different viewing platforms, Doc U turns its attention to the fundamental question: “What is the place of theatrical exhibition in a documentary’s overall distribution plan?”

Join IDA for a behind-the-scenes primer on theatrical distribution. Confirmed panelists include: Peter Goldwyn, Senior Vice President, Samuel Goldwyn Films; James Shapiro, Chief Operating Officer, Drafthouse Films; Michael Kananack, Head of International Acquisitions, Gathr Films.

Doc U is the International Documentary Association's series of educational seminars and workshops for aspiring and experienced documentary filmmakers. Taught by artists and industry experts, participants receive vital information and insight on various topics relevant to the world of documentary filmmaking.
