DOC NYC, America’s largest documentary film festival, has announced the full lineup for its sixth edition, running November 12-19 at the IFC Center in Greenwich Village and the Bow Tie Cinemas and SVA Theater in Chelsea. The 2015 festival includes 104 feature-length documentaries and has expanded to showcase over 200 films and events overall. Included are 27 world premieres and 15 U.S. premieres, with more than 200 filmmakers and special guests expected in person to present their films, including Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.
As previously announced, Barbara Kopple’s music doc “Miss Sharon Jones!” will open the festival. The New York City premiere of Amy Berg’s “Janis: Little Girl Blue” and the world premiere of Michael Epstein and Dyllan McGee’s “Once and For All” will round out the gala screenings as the Centerpiece and Closing Night selections, respectively.
“This year’s line-up represents the tremendous breadth and depth of documentary making,” said Director of Programming Basil Tsiokos. “The films introduce us to unforgettable characters full of emotion, inspiration and wonder. No matter what your interest -– arts, politics, sports, food, music, you name it -– we’ve got a film for you.”
