Change is hard. We constantly experience it, resist it, and eventually adapt to it. (If you don’t believe me, how many “New Facebooks” have you complained about in your status update, but never actually quit Facebook as a result?)
There is a new change those of us in the DC documentary community are facing, which has become the subject of many a status update, listserv posting, or water cooler conversation. And that all relates to a certain all-documentary film festival in our own backyards. The festival formerly known as Silverdocs. Or more accurately formerly known as the AFI-Discovery Channel Silverdocs Documentary Film Festival.
That festival is being reborn this year as AFI DOCS. Or more accurately AFI DOCS Presented by Audi.
