Kick-off to the Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) filmmaker retreat in Camden and Rockport, Maine

Today was the kick-off to the Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) filmmaker retreat in partnership with the Camden International Film Festival (CIFF) and CNN Films. The five-day Camden/TFI Retreat, presented by CNN Films, kicked off today in Camden and Rockport, Maine and will provide mentorship and guidance to five U.S filmmaking teams focused on creative, cinematic, character-driven documentaries.

The five projects selected for the retreat represent exciting new voices in documentary and embody the theme "American Stories." All of the projects feature character-driven portraits of America, drawing from a variety of different regions, issues, and perspectives. Together, the films form a diverse but intersecting body of work that maps the social, cultural, and economic shifts happening in America today.


The retreat, which includes a series of master classes, mentoring sessions, and workshops, will take place in an intimate and natural environment on the picturesque coast of Maine. It will be led by expert advisors including Director Steve James (Hoop Dreams, The Interrupters, Life Itself), Co-President of Submarine Entertainment Josh Braun, Producer Andrea Meditch (Grizzly Man, Man on Wire, Buck), Filmmaker Roger Ross Williams (Music by Prudence, God Loves Uganda), Editor Matt Hamachek (If a Tree Falls, Gideon’s Army, Cartel Land), Senior Director of CNN Films Courtney Sexton, and Vice President, Artist Programs, Tribeca Film Institute Ryan Harrington.

“We’re thrilled to partner with our friends at the Camden International Film Festival and CNN Films, bringing together this curated group of advisors and filmmakers,” said Ryan Harrington. “We are confident that during these five days, filmmakers will have the opportunity to meet with and learn from their peers and an outstanding group of mentors, and use this time to improve and enhance their own projects and careers.”

“This program is a big step forward in our commitment to creating opportunities for emerging documentary filmmakers to develop their work and grow as artists,” said CIFF’s Founder and Executive Director Ben Fowlie. “We see the Retreat as a direct extension of the programs we've developed through CIFF's Points North Documentary Forum over the past six years, and couldn't be more excited about convening such an incredibly talented group right here in our own backyard.”

“We deeply appreciate Tribeca Film Institute, Camden International Film Festival, and this extraordinary inaugural group of filmmakers for coming together to develop this unique opportunity to share their creativity, experience, and skills to inspire and guide newer artists,” said Executive Vice President, Talent and Content Development for CNN Worldwide, Amy Entelis.


The participants in the retreat are:


·         CORONER – Tommy C. Andres and Jacob Motz (Co-Directors); Ben Hethcoat (Producer)

CORONER follows Dr. Thomas Noguchi, one of the most important investigators in many of Hollywood’s most mysterious and controversial tragedies, earning him the nickname "Coroner to the Stars." He became a trailblazing figure in the world of forensics, revolutionizing the science and ushering it into popular culture before ultimately being forced from office in scandal.


·         COUNCILWOMAN –  Margo Guernsey (Director and Producer)

COUNCILWOMAN follows the first term of Rhode Island Councilwoman Carmen Castillo as she balances her day job as a hotel housekeeper with the demands of public office.

·         THE REAGAN YEARS –  Pacho Velez (Director); Sierra Pettengill (Producer)

THE REAGAN YEARS is about a prolific actor’s defining role: Leader of the Free World. It uses the Reagan administration's internal documentation to capture the spectacle of American might at its peak.
