Stable Life work-in-progress to screen at Rough Cuts, Monday November 14, 7:30 PM

We are pleased to announce that Stable Life will screen at the November 2011 session of Rough Cuts next Monday night, November 14, 7:30 PM, at the Ninth Street Independent Film Center, 145 Ninth Street, between Mission & Howard, San Francisco. Admission is $7, which includes wine & hors d’oeuvres. This will be the first public screening of Stable Life, and we expect that the audience feedback we receive will be important as we refine the film.

Rough Cuts is a series of work-in-progress documentary screenings that are produced every other month at various locations throughout San Francisco. Each meeting screens one rough cut of a long-form documentary followed by a moderated conversation about the film. These post-screening discussions are designed to give the filmmaker a better, more objective sense of what is working and not working with his/her film, with particular attention paid to improving the film’s structure and narrative clarity. The series also aims to provide a welcome space for local filmmakers, film professionals, and fans of documentary film to meet and talk.
