Oscar-Nominated Documentarian Steve James to Host Workshop on February 20th as Part of No Malice Film Contest


Steve James is one of the most acclaimed documentary filmmakers in American today. His observations on race in sports, education and the political fields have resulted in important documentaries that have opened up the dialogue on the topics for many. I hope you join us as he will be hosting a virtual workshop on filmmaking on Saturday, February 20th, at 10am CST. This exclusive event is open to all, but is intended as an instructional workshop for those contestants who will provide films as entries for the No Malice Film Contest, presented by the Roger and Chaz Ebert Foundation, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation. The contest is open to residents of Illinois between the ages of 11 and 21 to create short films that explore and promote racial healing. 

The film entries can be submitted up until Friday, April 30th. You can find all the details here, and the video here

To promote justice and a better world by highlighting important voices in film and supporting young artists, we have arranged for presentations every Saturday in February and the first Saturday in March by distinguished filmmakers and storytellers. The first two workshops laid an excellent foundation for filmmakers and can be seen here: the first by Troy Osborne Pryor, “Creating Your Own Content“; and the second workshop, “Directing: The Storyteller,” which was presented by Rita Coburn last weekend.

Below is the information for the Steve James workshop scheduled for this weekend, and also information for the workshops being presented by Pamela Sherrod Anderson and T. Shawn Taylor. You will also find the links to register for them…
