The five-day program presents the very best of contemporary documentary filmmaking from across the globe, including world and international premieres, and works by master and emerging filmmakers alike. AFI DOCS presents about 70 films representing many countries, and numerous special events to an audience of over 12,000.
Each year, AFI DOCS presents a slate of filmmaker engagement programs to create additional opportunities for documentary filmmakers to enhance both their careers and the impact of their films. The AFI DOCS Forum includes filmmaker-focused panels, presentations and informal meetings, as well as other networking opportunities. The AFI DOCS Impact Lab is a two-day, intensive program for filmmakers with issue-driven documentaries who aim to create broader social and political change. The Lab provides select filmmakers with unique training opportunities in the areas of advocacy, grassroots communications and grasstops engagement.
Since its inception in 2003, the leading documentary storytellers of our day have embraced AFI DOCS as the place for nonfiction films to catalyze a national conversation.
