2018 SLIFF – IDA Conversation Series: AJ Schnack

With the International Documentary Association, SLIFF co-presents an entry in the IDA’s signature Conversation Series, which hosts discussions with prominent documentary filmmakers. This edition features multiple SLIFF alum AJ Schnack, a native of Edwardsville, Ill., and a previous Charles Guggenheim Cinema St. Louis Award honoree. Schnack has directed a quintet of highly lauded feature documentaries: “Gigantic (A Tale of Two Johns)” (2002), “Kurt Cobain About a Son” (2006), “Convention” (2009), “Caucus” (2013), and, with David Wilson, “We Always Lie to Strangers” (2013). Schnack was the first recipient of AFI Silverdocs’ Cinematic Vision Award. He is the founder and co-chair of the Cinema Eye Honors for nonfiction filmmaking. More recently, he co-created Field of Vision, a visual journalism film unit, with Laura Poitras and Charlotte Cook. Schnack will be interviewed about his career and the state of documentary film by Kamau Bilal, whose short “Baby Brother” screens at SLIFF.
