MFA SocDoc Film Annual Thesis Showcase

Event hosted by: SVA MFA Social Documentary Film
Join us to celebrate the School of VISUAL ARTS MFA Social Documentary Film with the 7th Annual Thesis Showcase. This screening series is a preview of documentary shorts and features in-progress, the work of SocDoc’s Class of 2017. Filmmakers will be present, and Q&As will follow each screening.
The films this year tackle no smaller concepts than realizing your potential, and the quest to be seen, heard and – perhaps most importantly – understood. They take us through the subways and the streets of NYC’s five boroughs, to Connecticut, Korea and Thailand. We’ll meet chefs, rappers, black belts, wanderers, filmmakers, YouTube stars, a giant pig, and several dogs. We’ll talk film history, queer identity, immigration, masculinity, the power of religion, the power of music, the strength of community – and of course, food. And, they’re funny!
Screenings are Sept. 22-23 at the SVA Theatre, and are free & open to the public. RSVP here. And, to whet your appetite, watch the Showcase Trailer!
