At the Helm: Nancy Lang

Buried Treasure

The Diggings of a Documentary Researcher

sunday, SEPT 22
11:15am – 12:30pm

The bones, breadth, complexity and flavour of any film depends on good research. That doesn’t mean endless months in dusty archives. Join Nancy as she shares clips and stories about her favourite research adventures, including her recent work on a documentary about Margaret Atwood.

Producer, director, researcher, Nancy Lang co-produced the documentary West Wind: The Vision of Tom Thomson, which was honoured with the Directors’ Guild of Canada Award for Best Documentary. She produced Painted Land: In Search of the Group of Seven, for which she won the 2017 Barbara Sears Canadian Screen Award for Best Editorial Research. She co-directed/produced Where The Universe Sings: The Spiritual Journey of Lawren Harris. These days, she is producing an art series, In The Making, and is finishing a documentary on Margaret Atwood.

All industry sessions are application-based.
Selected filmmakers will receive free-admission with the purchase of a Festival Pass.
