We explore the craft of directing through films in this year’s Doc/Fest that focus on a central character. Taking us deep into their films and filmic method, directors on the panel will explore their approaches to character and taking the audience into their world. How does the relationship work, and what happens if it goes wrong?

Seahorse and The Last Watch, both directed by Jeanie Finlay are screening at the festival.

XY Chelsea, directed by Tim Travers Hawkins is screening at the festival.
