The American Film Institute has announced a new year-round documentary screening program entitled AFI DOCS FILM SERIES, which will take place exclusively in Washington D.C. and supplement the AFI DOCS Film Festival in June. Throughout the year, AFI DOCS will bring the best nonfiction films and filmmakers to the nation’s capital.

The first documentary to get the AFI DOCS treatment will be Michael Moore’s “Where to Invade Next,” which will screen on November 16, almost over a month before its December debut in select theaters December 23. Admission to this event and to all screenings in the AFI DOCS FILM SERIES will be free to invited guests and select AFI members. 

“We see great enthusiasm in Washington, DC for world-class documentary experiences,” said Michael Lumpkin, Director of AFI DOCS. “The AFI DOCS FILM SERIES gives thoughtful, intelligent movie fans a first look at the best documentaries throughout the year. In addition to the wonderful lineup of films presented year round at the AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center, this new series enables us to bring even more filmmakers and their true storytelling to our nation’s capitol.”
