The Belcourt is collaborating with Magnolia Pictures to present their series, A Few of Our Favorite Docs. The series consists of four films, each “opening” on a Friday, with a live Q&A the following Wednesday. 10% of ticket sales will be donated to a charity of the filmmakers’ choice. Tickets for each documentary are $5 and include access to the livestream.
Here’s the line-up:
Questions for the Q&A’s will be solicited in advance. You can either submit them over email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can tweet using the hashtag #magnoliadocseries. Magnolia Pictures will collect the best questions and send them to the filmmakers in advance of the live Q&A’s.
