As digital video cameras become more popular, as people start taking videos from their cellphones, and as new sites emerge online to distribute these videos, citizen filmmaking is taking off. Many people will be simply sharing home movies. Others, however, will want to create documentaries, political advertisements, and citizen journalism. The Workshop & Festival will celebrate noteworthy citizen filmmaking and provide workshops for those wishing to learn how to become more involved. Conveners: Aldon Hynes, Ned Lamont Senate Campaign; Steve Garfield, RocketBoom.com
