The Non-Fiction CartelOrganization in Boston, Massachusetts
Tomorrow evening, come and see a "Mountain Valley Pipeline: A Threat to Our Trail, Our Water, Our Jobs" programmed in coordination with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and Emerson College for the Bright Lights Screening Series. This is an excellent opportunity to not only see an important feature documentary about the effects of energy on Appalachian communities - but to also see a short that is informative about a natural gas pipeline effecting the Appalachian Trail corridor and waterways.
Bright Lights first Documentary screening of the Spring season, the acclaimed One of Us, is next week - mark your calendar!
Congrats to the 2017 Camden Cartel Award Runners Up: Adam Khalil, Zack Khalil, and Jackson Polys for "The Violence of a Civilization without Secrets" being accepted into Sundance!

Unable to spend last night watching Monkey's and Cat's? Never fear, Eleanor Mortimer's "Territory" - programmed by us for the Emerson College Bright Lights Film Series is available online. Watch it here:
Tonight come and spend some time with animals! Monkey's and Cat's, that is. Feature documentary Kedi is being paired with Eleanor Mortimer's "Territory":
The rock of Gibraltar is shared by two primate species.
The monkeys have populated the upper rock since before the British arrived, but now relationships between the two are becoming tense. The monkeys have no respect for the territorial boundaries drawn by the humans, and find our behaviour difficult to fathom in general…
Unable to make the screening of "Conditioned Response" last night? See it online here! Hope to see short documentary lovers out next Tuesday at Emerson College for the screening of Eleanor Mortimer's "Territory" before feature "Kedi".
Screening of Field of Vision's Conditioned Response before Whose Streets followed by a powerful discussion of policing in America. Proud to partner with Bright Lights curating short form documentaries before their feature program.
This Thursday at Emerson College The Non-Fiction Cartel is bringing you Field of Vision produced "Conditioned Response" by Craig Atkinson and Laura Hartrick before the must see "Whose Streets".
We are excited to announce a new partnership with the Bright Lights Film Series at Emerson. We are working in tandem to curate short form documentary films to play before the Bright Lights' feature documentary programming; and this all starts tomorrow!
Emerson Alumna Elaine McMillion Sheldon's short documentary Forager will play before Emerson College Faculty Paul Turano's Wander, Wonder, Wilderness. Come and explore urban wild's and hidden edible treasures with these two excellent films.
High temps, high turnout and a tight space for our NFC meeting this month. Good thing we all like each other. Here we are giving feedback on member Kori Feener's work-in-progress.
Congratulations to member Ben Pender-Cudlip who won the Doc-A-Chusetts film pitch for his new project Tethys. Look out for his work in progress!...
Thanks to the staff and Program Director Jeff Schmidt for the curation and hospitality. We had a blast!
