Docs in the City Screenings


This new film screening series from Docs In Progress pairs seasoned and emerging documentary filmmakers whose films share a genre or theme. Each program will include a screening of a work-in-progress by an emerging documentary filmmaker followed by a feedback session with the audience and the seasoned filmmaker as respondent. This will be followed by a new look at a classic film by the seasoned filmmaker.

Thanks to the support of the National Endowment for the Arts, in 2017, we will be organizing two of these screenings:

Sunday, August 6: Spotlight on Personal Documentaries
Things get personal as we delve into the lives of two filmmakers and their families in an exploration of the genre of personal documentary. Join us for one or both films.

2:00 pm: Work-in-Progress Screening of Bonnie Rich's Searching For My Jewish Soul followed by a feedback session with guest filmmaker Doug Block and the audience facilitated by Erica Ginsberg 

4:00 pm Screening of Doug Block's 51 Birch Street, followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker. moderated by Andrea Passafiume 

Tickets on sale soon.

A second screening will be announced for Fall 2017.
