Films at this year’s DocFest will explore subjects from the International Criminal Court, the life and career of Rin Tin Tin, Muslim comic book heroes, the fascinating life of the man who brings Elmo to life, and the life lessons of Mister Rogers. Participants will include Susan Orlean, David Carr, Kevin Clash, Ann Curry, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, Estela Bravo, Tiffany Shlain, Pamela Yates, Joe Berlinger, Josh Fox, Perri Peltz, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Jane Rosenthal and Tom Brokaw.
Following each screening, the filmmakers, subjects of the presenting films, and special guests will take part in the lively Q&A discussions that are a hallmark of the Festival. Complimentary wine receptions will take place before each screening.
In addition to our screenings, The Art of the Documentary Pitch is scheduled for October 29th at 2pm. In this workshop/competition, five pre-selected, emerging filmmakers will pitch their ideas to a panel of distinguished documentary producers–and to you. The producers will give feedback on the concepts as well as their presentation skills. The winner will receive a $5,000 grant, sponsored by the Documentary Channel to be used toward the completion of the pitched film.
