Budding filmmakers showcase their short documentaries

The second graduating class from Seneca’s Documentary and Filmmaking Institute (DFI) held a screening of their short documentaries at the Rivoli on Wednesday, September 1. Thirteen films were shown to a packed house which included guest of honour August Murphy-King, son of the late legendary documentary filmmaker Alan King. August was on hand to help award the Alan King Memorial Prize to the best short documentary which was awarded to Kathryn Threlkeld for her documentary “Burning Blossom” about her personal struggle with mental illness. An honourable mention went to Michelle Whiting for her documentary on the recent G20 protests, “I was here.”

The DFI is a program designed to equip students with the critical and practical skills to work in the documentary film industry as an independent producer. This one-semester program combines hands-on production skills with a foundational knowledge of the documentary tradition and a background in Canadian and international business practice.
