Event hosted by: DOC NYC

DOC NYC burst upon the scene in 2010 with an inaugural event that was hailed as “ambitious” (New York Times) and “selective but eclectic” (Village Voice). By 2014, DOC NYC had become America’s largest documentary film festival and voted by MovieMaker magazine as one of the “top five coolest documentary film festivals in the world”.  Based at the West Village’s IFC Center, Chelsea’s SVA Theatre, and Cinépolis Chelsea, the eight-day festival showcases new achievements in documentary film along with panels and conversations.  It also seeks to make connections that happen “only in New York.”
Tickets and information are available at  The box office will only be open at SVA Theatre when DOC NYC is taking place at the venue — 11/10-11/13 and 11/17.  Please email [email protected] if you have questions regarding tickets.  Do not contact SVA Theatre directly.
