We hope you’re ready for Point of View’s 25th Anniversary event on February 28 – especially to hear some documentary titans go head-to-head in the debate that will be opening the evening.

We’ve been fortunate enough to have had many of the debaters contribute to POV recently. To help you get to know these great speakers ahead of the debate, we’ve rounded up their recent articles for you to read.

Kevin McMahon
The New Debate: Is the documentary our national art form?

Peter Wintonick
The Docmedia Manifesto

Sean Farnel
Towards a filmmaker bill of rights

Rudy Buttignol
A Public Space for Independent Voices

Maya Gallus & Justine Pimlott

Happy reading, and see you Thursday night!
