docfest The New York International Documentary Festival is an annual event created in 1998 to present new and classic international documentaries to New York City audiences.
docfest presents five days of film and video screenings and The New Technology showcase that explores up-to-the-minute developments in documentary thought, technique, and technology. docfest features conversations with documentary masters. Previous guests have included Jean Rouch, Fred Wiseman, and Ricky Leacock.
Every screening and seminar, presented in docfest, is followed by a 45-60 minute panel discussion with the filmmaker, film subject(s), and often additional guests or relevant experts in the field. Additionally, after each discussion there is a meet-the-panel reception which offers the audience the opportunity to personally interact with our special guests, offering invaluable insights into the world of documentary filmmaking and the world around us.
The tangible intimacy of The New York Documentary Center programs is a combined result of our thoughtful and innovative programming, high standard of film selection, first class screening venues, and most importantly, the personal detailed attention that is given to both our participating filmmakers and our audience.
Selection for docfest is by invitation only and if invited there is no submission fee.
