WHAT IS DOC NYC?
Documentary storytelling is flourishing like never before â€“ encompassing reportage, memoir, history, humor and more. DOC NYC celebrates this cultural phenomenon and encourages its new directions.
Among its missions, DOC NYC aims to:
CURATE: guide audiences toward inspiring work.
CROSS FERTILIZE: gather practitioners of many fields â€“ filmmakers, writers, photographers and other storytellers to inspire each other.
CROSS GENERATIONS: use the festivalâ€™s partnership with School of Visual Arts as a means for younger and older voices to communicate.
CULTIVATE NEW AUDIENCES: attract newcomers with the excitement of a festival atmosphere.
EXPAND DISTRIBUTION: help documentary storytellers make the most of emerging technologies such as video downloads, podcasts and electronic readers.
CREATE SOCIAL SPACE: bring people together in theaters, lounges, and discussion spaces in Greenwich Village and Chelsea.
MAKE THE MOST OF NYC: foster fresh connections between residents and expose visitors to the opportunities that happen only in New York.
For the past ten years, the team behind DOC NYC has been building a community around the weekly documentary film series Stranger Than Fiction at the IFC Center. In four years, DOC NYC has become the countryâ€™s largest documentary festival with over 130 films and events; and over 100 special guests. â€œDOC NYC has quickly become one of the cityâ€™s grandest cinema events,â€ wrote the Wall Street Journal.
