Doc Fortnight, MoMA’s annual international festival of nonfiction film, returns for its 17th year with 12 days of innovative approaches to documentary filmmaking. Featuring a diverse assortment of features and short films from across the globe, the festival continues to highlight the vibrant and varied styles of independent filmmakers—both emerging and established—around the world.
In recognition of the recent passing of award-winning filmmaker Jonathan Demme, this year’s festival includes a retrospective of several documentaries made during his prolific career. And at a time of escalating sociopolitical tension, Doc Fortnight continues to showcase nonfiction film that challenges our perceptions of the changing world and the traditional model of documentary cinema.
Organized by Kathy Brew, Guest Curator, with Gianna Collier-Pitts.
