Queer Storytelling Workshop with Catherine Gund - Scottish Documentary Institute

Queer Storytelling Workshop with Catherine Gund

Founder and Director of Aubin Pictures, Catherine Gund is an Emmy-nominated producer, director, writer, and activist. Her work focuses on sustainable social transformation, sexuality and gender, HIV/AIDS, reproductive health, and other social justice issues. She works actively with numerous organisations to this end and co-founded Third Wave Foundation, which supports young women and transgender youth, and DIVA TV, an affinity group of ACT UP/NY. She was founding director of BENT TV, a video workshop for LGBT youth. Her most recent films include Chavela (2017), Dispatches from Cleveland (2017), and Born to Fly (2014).

In this unique day-long workshop, Catherine will explore her approach to making powerful, character-centred films, from shorts to features, and her commitment to stories about LGBTQI communities. She will screen excerpts from her work and give feedback on your own projects in development.
