IFP and Shooting People UK Announce Partnership at Sheffield Doc/Fest
Announced on this side on the pond in the midst of Independent Film Week, IFP has joined forces with Shooting People to combine memberships. Last week, in the midst of the UK's biggest and most exciting film festival for nonfiction film, Sheffield Doc/Fest, Jess Search, co-founder of Shooting People (pictured), Ingrid Kopp, US director of Shooting People (pictured), and Danielle DiGiacomo (Community Manager of IFP, and also yours truly) officially announced the dual membership to their 21,948-strong UK constituency.
At the festival, IFP worked to spread the goals and resources of IFP to the international community of filmmakers that attended, including moderating a panel on Documentary Filmmaking: Making a Sustainable Living, while Shooting People ran a Digital Bootcamp as well as a pub quiz at the BritDoc pub (where these happy photos were taken).
