Tribute to George Stoney: How Film Can Change Lives

In October, DER co-sponsored a panel at The Vermont International Film Festival examining the work and legacy of pioneering documentary filmmaker George C. Stoney. The panel, consisting of Stoney’s collaborators and others who consider their current work to be a continuation of his legacy, discussed his influence on documentary filmmaking practices and ethics, and in the development of early public access media.

Excerpts from Stoney’s groundbreaking films, such as All My Babies, are included. Read more and watch a video at the VIFF website.
