June 20 Filmmakers Workshop is FULL!

Dear friends,
Within one short hour of the email invitations being sent out for Junes Filmmaker Workshop, the workshop was full. As you know, we need to limit the number of attendees to insure a successful rough cut screening for the filmmaker who is screening.

If you received a confirmed rsvp in your email-we look forward to seeing you on the 20th. If you have received notice that you are on the waiting list, rest assured that we will contact you if and when there are any openings.

We appreciate your continued support and interest in the workshops. Even if you can’t attend that night, we hope that you will continue to network with other filmmakers on the filmmakers workshop online network— and watch for special online events over the summer.

The workshops will be taking a break over the summer and be back in September. See you then!
Susi, Tracy, Julie, Megan

June 20 Filmmakers Workshop- Rough Cut Screening of "LUCKEY"

On June 20th, Filmmakers Workshop will present a rough cut screening of “LUCKEY", a documentary being produced by Laura Longsworth.

LUCKEY is a one-hour documentary about a paralyzed sculptor. In September 2005, as he was designing a three-story climbable sculpture for the Boston Children’s Museum, Tom Luckey fell through a window and damaged his fourth vertebra. The film begins a year after Tom’s accident. He has come through rehabilitation and is off his ventilator, but he is a quadriplegic and can move only his head. Determined to finish his sculpture, Tom forms a turbulent alliance with his son Spencer, an architect. They are best friends, but fierce competitors. The film follows the two men over nine months as they build Tom’s vision of an enormous work of public art that comes to life when children climb it. The film explores the raw and turbulent relationship between a father and son who fuel one another’s artistic ambition.

The workshop will be held at the Bernard Toale Gallery in Bostons South End. YOU MUST HAVE A CONFIRMED RSVP from in order to attend. The event is free.

Location: Bernard Toale Gallery- 450 Harrison Avenue, Boston
