9:00 a.m.–3:45 p.m

The Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program (DFP), in collaboration with the Miami Filmmakers Collective, hosted a special Rough Cut & Scene Selects Feedback Session, which gave filmmakers from the Miami, Florida, area the opportunity to present projects at the rough cut stage or selections of edited scenes for feedback from DFP staff, creative advisors, and other experienced filmmakers.

April Dobbins was one of four selected participants for the Rough Cut and Feedback session. She was invited to screen scenes from her documentary film project Alabamaland for Sundance staff and documentary filmmakers Catherine Tambini and Rachelle Salnave. Barrett Dennison joined her for this screening. April discusses the challenges with the making of her film and her goals for the finished product. The panel provided advice on developing a more compelling story.
