The Museum of Modern Art's ninth annual international non-fiction film festival, featuring 20 features and 23 mid to short length docs, will run from February 17 through March 3, 2010. The fest will consist of various thematic programs built around the idea of community and collaborative filmmaking and a film program curated by Sally Berger, MoMA assistant curator, with Andrew Ingall, Liza Johnson.

The festival will open on February 17 with the U.S. premiere of Christoph Draeger's "The End of the Remake" trilogy, a series of films based on the films and culture of the 1960s. Directly following "Remake," David Christensen's "The Mirror" ("Lo specchio") will have its U.S. premiere. "Mirror" follows the mayor of a small Italian town as he attempts to erect a giant mirror on a nearby mountain in order to reflect sunlight into the town square during the dark winter months. Other notable films being screened include: George Gittoes' "Miscreants of Taliwood," an exploration of the Tribal Belt of the northwest frontier of Pakistan; Carol Dysinger's work-in-progress "Camp Victory Afghanistan," a portrait of National Guardsmen stationed in Herat who take on Afghan officers as mentees; "Vlast" ("Power") by Cathryn Collins, the story of Russia's once wealthiest man who now resides in a prison in Siberia; Bill and Turner Ross's "45365" delves into the residents of that area code in western Ohio; and Johan Grimonprez's "Double Take," a narrative-doc blend that features Alfred Hitchcock as a paranoid history professor.

The festival's community and collaborative film and media initiative programming will feature films funded by the International Documentary Film Festival of Amsterdam's Jan Virijman Fund (Massoud Bakhshi's "Tehran Has No More Pomegranates!," Bettina Perut and Ivan Osnovikoff's "News," and Jawed Taiman's "Addicted in Afghanistan"). The fest will also feature three U.S.-based initiatives: Appalshop in Whitesburg, Kentucky; NYC's Deep Dish Television; and Brooklyn's UnionDocs Collaborative.

Curator Sally Berger will provide insight to the year's program on the MoMA Inside Out blog. For the complete screening schedule, visit www.moma.org.
