International Documentary Association Announces 3rd Annual Documentary Screening Series, Including 'Amy,' 'Meru' and More

The International Documentary Association (IDA) has announced its 3rd Annual Documentary Screening Series, which will begin on September 17 with a screening of Fox Searchlight’s “He Named Me Malala.” The screening series, presented in partnership with Indiewire, celebrates this year’s most urgent and inspiring documentaries. Rounding out the series are screenings of acclaimed films such as  “Amy,” “Meru,” “Welcome to Leith,” “The Wolfpack” and more.

On opening night, Davis Guggenheim (“An Inconvenient Truth,” “Waiting for Superman”) will participate in a Q&A with Indiewire’s Editor in Chief Dana Harris after a screening of his latest doc, “He Named Me Malala.” The film paints a portrait of Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate who was targeted and attacked by the Taliban after advocating for girls’ education.

“2015 has brought us some truly wonderful and inspiring documentary films,” said Simon Kilmurry, Executive Director of the IDA, “and the IDA is proud to once again showcase great non-fiction work to a connected, engaged, and informed audience.”

The 3rd Annual Documentary Screening Series will take place at the Landmark Theater in Los Angeles from September to December. All screenings are free, but reservations are required. For more information, head to the IDA website.
