About the Program
Founded by Susan Kaplan in 1993, DocuClub is a works-in-progress screening series offering the public and members of the documentary film community a first look at new projects. Filmmakers and creators have the opportunity to showcase their rough cut and consult feedback from their peers and audience.
For many, DocuClub is the first opportunity for a filmmaker to share their work-in-progress in an intimate setting with a general audience at a critical moment in their process. Presented in partnership with regional film organizations, selected filmmakers are paired with seasoned story/editing consultants to help them integrate audience feedback into their film.
In 2023, DocuClub will be holding in-person screenings. Due to the ongoing limitations of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue to monitor public health and safety guidelines and adjust if necessary.
Our partner organizations for 2023 are:
- DCTV in New York City
- Film Independent in Los Angeles
- Hawai’i Women in Filmmaking in Honolulu
- Sisters in Cinema in Chicago
Applications for the 2023 season are now open. We are currently only accepting submissions from Los Angeles and New York-based filmmakers.
