This is a work in progress screening of the newest film from NHDocs.  Do you love pizza? Let’s face it…we all do.  It’s the most loved food in American. And we want to tell you a story about three pizza places in the town of New Haven, Connecticut that you may or may not have heard of.  They’re named: Sally’s Apizza, Frank Pepe’s Pizzeria Napoletana, and Modern Apizza, and they are generally considered to be three of the finest pizza restaurants on the planet. Anyone who’s ever sampled a pie from one of these New Haven brick oven pizza palaces, knows that they’ve just tasted the finest pizza known to mankind. One bite and there is no going back. Just look at the Daily Meal‘s list of the 100 best pizzas in the United States. We rank #1, #3, and #8…that’s in a town with approximately 1% of New York City’s population. But how did this happen?  How does this one little town in one of the smallest states just happen to have three of the greatest pizza places in the world…all within a few blocks of each other?  We’re 90 miles from New York City and yet what makes New Yorkers drive the two-plus hours to New Haven just for pizza?  What made Frank Sinatra send his driver from Hoboken, New Jersey, to New Haven just to pick up pizzas?  What makes rock stars visiting the tri-state (NY, NJ, CT) area include in their riders that New Haven pizza must be served in the green room?  What made director Steven Spielberg send a private jet to the local New Haven airport to pick up 50 pies for his son’s wedding?  What is in the proverbial water?  Why is this pizza so good, so different?  What makes people wait in line for hours for New Haven pizza? Our film PIZZA, A LOVE STORY will explain it all.  You’ll learn about the history, the families, the love, and craft that goes into each and every pie.  And you’ll discover a whole new appreciation for pizza as true culinary art. This feature-length documentary has been in the works for ten years, and we are finally close to completing this labor of love.  And by “we,” I mean three of the most passionate pizza lovers on the planet: director Gorman Bechard, musician/producer Dean Falcone, and New Haven historian/operator of Taste of New Haven Colin Caplan.  We love pizza with all of our heart and soul.  We truly do. We have assembled interviews, an amazing collection of historic photos and memorabilia (anyone remember the Pepe’s television commercial from the 60s?), and anecdotes that will leave you laughing and hungry at the same time.  (No joke, it is impossible to work on editing this film without going for a pizza within the first hour.) PIZZA, A LOVE STORY will take us on a journey which began in 1925 with the pies that would change the world. We have talked to the families, the employees, and especially the fans (both the famous and unknown) who’ll wait in line for hours for a taste. We’ll present a history of what IS the greatest pizza in the world. With the purchase of a ticket, you will get a screening of the film along with pizza and a drink.

THE FUTURE OF FILMMAKING: HOW WOMEN AND IMMERSIVE TECHNOLOGIES ARE CHANGING THE GAME On June 27th and 28th, join from anywhere in the world to participate online in Future of Film Virtual Conference. Women in film are emerging from the sidelines, they bring new stories, new perspectives, new approaches. They are changing the status quo. At the same time immersive technologies like VR and AR are changing the way content is consumed. Viewers are hungry for more varied content. Learn how female filmmakers are changing the game, what are the newest trends in immersive storytelling and get inspired. Join us for two full days of talks and workshops on 27 - 28 June 2018 and hear directly from those moving the needle. The filmmaking universe is being reshuffled. Exciting times ahead! Let’s join forces and build a new reality where everybody’s voice counts! This online conference is meant to inform, connect and inspire. Everybody is welcome. CONFERENCE TRACKS Women Filmmakers: Front and Center With more female filmmakers, comes more variety in the types of stories that make it to the screen. What we see is a ripple effect - when there’s a female director, the film crew tends to diversify altogether. As a result we can expect an exponential rise in opportunities for people who haven’t got the chance to shine before. The future is bright and female! What are the barriers to getting equal access to funding and how to remove those? How to set up models for monetization? Do we need quotas for public funding? How to adapt to an ever-changing industry and still remain authentic? Immersive Tech: Shaping the New Way Stories are Told The advance of immersive technologies is changing the way we tell and perceive a story. Old rules of filmmaking don't apply and fresh approaches come to the front. Storytellers have the power to impact their audiences like never before. Virtual reality is promising to bring about the most disruptive changes since the invention of motion picture. With this new power come new responsibilities. Let's shape the future together! What are the ethical implications of emerging media? How does immersive tech influence the way we tell stories and reach audiences? Can we harness the power of virtual reality to achieve positive social impact? What are the new platforms for showing your VR creations?
