PGA East: Documentary Screening Salon

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, February 26, 2019

The PGA East Documentary/Non-Fiction Committee presents the Documentary Screening Salon, an exclusive monthly curated program designed to enlighten audiences and spur discussion.  Once a month, the committee behind this lineup screens a documentary, presents a Q&A featuring the filmmakers, and concludes with a reception to encourage more conversation.


The Documentary Screening Salon is managed by members of the PGA East Documentary and Nonfiction Committee, and focuses on documentaries with small distributors, self-distributed, or without distribution.  This subset of qualified members aspire to choose documentaries they believe should have the opportunity to reach a larger audience, thus providing an exclusive look for members, as well as a venue for filmmakers to showcase their work.  The program aims to provide not only the experience of viewing the film, but enrich the issues brought to the surface by surrounding them with informed discussion.


In 2018, the Documentary Screening Salon screened several highly acclaimed independent documentaries: Minding The Gap, On Her Shoulders, Our New President, Chi-Town, and House Two.  Each year the program runs from March through August, and invites for the evening are sent to all 1800 members within the Guild's East region. Screenings are not open to the public or press, and the venue is provided at no cost.


Although the Documentary Screening Salon is not a member screening program, members are strongly encouraged to submit their documentaries for consideration.  All documentaries should be submitted a minimum of 8 weeks prior to release date. This is a very competitive process, and Documentary Screening Salon selection panel decisions are final.


If you are interested in submitting your documentary for consideration, please complete the Documentary Screening Salon submission Form.
