The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Supports Doc U On the Road
By KJ Relth
We are pleased to announce that The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has provided the IDA with a $10,000 grant through their Institutional Grants Program, 2012-2013. The generous funding will help the IDA make Doc U On The Road happen once again.
In 2011, Doc U traveled to Brooklyn and Washington, DC, where panelists explored whether a documentary film could change the world. This year, we will be drawing on a variety of themes and asking you, our faithful community, to decide what you would like to hear discussed by a curated panel of experts from the field.
This is the third year in a row that The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is funding the Doc U program outside of its home in Los Angeles, and we’re excited for the opportunity to reach audiences beyond Southern California once again.
We cannot thank The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences enough for believing in IDA’s mission and for their ongoing support and generosity.
Stay tuned to see if Doc U is coming to a city near you!
