Rough Cuts is a series of work-in-progress documentary screenings that are
produced every other month at a variety of locations throughout San
Francisco. For each evening, we screen one rough cut of a feature-length
documentary and then moderate a conversation about the film. These
post-screening discussions are designed to give the filmmaker a better,
more objective sense of what is working and not working with his/her film,
with particular attention paid to improving the film’s structure and
narrative clarity. We hope that the series also provides a welcome space
for local filmmakers, film professionals, and fans of documentary film to
meet and talk.

We are seeking long-form works with a final running time of 40 minutes or
longer. Principal photography should have been completed, and we encourage
filmmakers to submit cuts that are in the later stages of post-production
(i.e. NOT first or second cuts).
