Documentary storytelling is flourishing like never before – encompassing reportage, memoir, history, humor and more. DOC NYC celebrates this cultural phenomenon and encourages its new directions.
For the past eight years, the team behind DOC NYC has been building a community around the weekly documentary film series Stranger Than Fiction at the IFC Center. Our background of hosting documentary makers from around the world and consistently selling out shows has given us practical experience to launch this festival. Some of our favorite STF nights have involved connecting film to other worlds – as we filled the theater full of war photographers for Blood Trail or advertising executives for Art & Copy or restaurateurs for A Table In Heaven. While STF will continue its weekly run on Tuesday nights, DOC NYC allows us to focus a different kind of energy into one concentrated chunk of time.
