IDA Announces Initial Slate of Films for Documentary Screening Series

The IDA is thrilled to announce the initial slate of films for its IDA Documentary Screening Series. Launching September 26 at The Landmark Theater with Inequality for All, the series will screen some of the year’s best documentaries followed by Q&A discussions with filmmakers, moderated by IDA’s Media Partners Dana Harris, Editor-in-Chief of Indiewire and Jon Wiener, Contributing Editor of The Nation, as well as Matt Holzman of KCRW. The Q&As will be recorded and made available on documentary.org, on the IDA’s YouTube Channel, and will be shared by the filmmakers and moderators.

"The IDA Documentary Screening Series offers industry audiences the opportunity to see great documentaries and raises awareness of the documentary genre during this year’s awards season," said Michael Lumpkin, IDA’s Executive Director. "The Q&A discussions will add another level of involvement for film-goers, allowing filmmakers to connect directly to audiences."

Films currently confirmed for the Series, which will run through January 2014, include The Crash Reel, Dirty Wars, Inequality for All, Two: The Story of Roman and Nyro, and Twenty Feet From Stardom.

RSVPs now being accepted for Inequality for All on September 26. Dana Harris will moderate the post-screening Q&A with director Jacob Kornbluth and Professor Robert Reich. Register here.
