For the fifth consecutive year, IndieWire will partner with the Independent Documentary Association for its annual screening series. It launches tonight with Yance Ford’s “Strong Island,” which won a special jury prize at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
The screenings come fast and furious after that with Christina Clusiau and Shaul Schwarz’s “Trophy” on September 14, Bryan Fogel’s “Icarus” September 18, Matthew Heineman’s “City of Ghosts” September 21, and more than 30 more documentaries to follow through the end of November, including Amir Bar-Lev’s “A Long Strange Trip,” Evgeny Afineevsky’s “Cries From Syria,” Peter Bratt’s “Dolores,” and Rebecca Miller’s “Arthur Miller: Writer.”
Each film includes a post-screening Q&A with the directors and other talent, often moderated by IndieWire. We’ll post Q&A coverage along with video of the event. All screenings are held at the Landmark Theater in Los Angeles.
