What You're Missing at DocuWeeks
Unless you've been hiding under a proverbial rock for the past few weeks, you're probably aware that IDA has been hosting a program in New York (ended 9/1) and Los Angeles called DocuWeeks
. Spanning from early August to September 8, DocuWeeks
is a great program that helps a select handful of documentary films qualify for Oscar nominations. With a full program of seven short docs next to 17 amazing features over the course of three weeks in both New York and LA, we don't blame you for missing some of the action. There's a lot to take in at this 15th edition of DocuWeeks
, and we want you to have a peek at some of the fun.
Bryn Mooser and David Darg, producer and director of short doc Sun City Picture House
, pose with the poster for their film at Laemmle Sunset 5.
Cari Anne Shim Sham*, director of SAND
, stands in front of the poster for her short documentary at the Laemmle.
To kick off each week's new slate of docs, The Standard Hollywood hosts a mixer for DocuWeeks filmmakers and IDA members.
Looks pretty swanky, huh?
IDA Members and filmmakers relax and meet new faces at The Standard Hollywood.
Menage a Trois provides the wine for all of the Member Mixers in New York and LA...
..and Stella Artois supplies us with the beer.
When the filmmakers aren't posing with their posters or mixing it up with other doc makers, they can usually be found talking to audiences during their Q&As after screenings.
