Docs on Sunset

The IDA Board of Directors and Executive Director Simon Kilmurry are pleased to invite you to an exclusive fundraising party to celebrate and support the vital work of documentary storytellers. We've been so busy at IDA these last few years—defending the rights of filmmakers, training the next generation of storytellers and granting millions of dollars to award-winning films that will change the world—we've entirely forgotten to celebrate our successes!

We are long overdue for a good party and we hope you will join us for an industry-wide celebration of documentary storytelling. Whether you work in documentary or simply love watching them, this gathering is for you. 

Hosted by James Costa, IDA Board of Directors Vice-President at his Hollywood Hills residence. Shuttles to be provided from 9000 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood.

6pm Champagne VIP reception
7 pm General reception
8 pm presentation
9 pm dessert

Knock Down the House is distributed by Netflix. Her last feature, The Hand That Feeds (co-directed with Robin Blotnick) was nominated for an Emmy in 2017, broadcast on PBS, and won awards and recognition at Full Frame, DOC NYC, AFI Docs, and other festivals.
