We are partnering up with 11 film festivals from across both American continents this month for a program of 12 titles hand-picked by festival programmers. These partner film festivals, some of the best-regarded nationally and internationally for non-fiction cinema, themselves chart a course all along the map of the Americas, covering Peru, Chile, Argentina, Mexico, the Yukon in Canada, and the United States. Collectively, the choices of their curators reflect and emphasize the great diversity of styles of documentary filmmaking that are evident otherwise only once you immerse yourself in the non-fiction scene today. Since not everybody has the time or the means to be so well versed in these trends, with this special partnership we're bringing you a multi-faceted overview of the treasures that are out there, waiting to be discovered.
In this spirit, we are overjoyed to announce this partnership with the best of North and South American festivals, an enviable line-up. DocsMX, BAFICI, Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival, SF DocFest, Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, DOXA, Frontera Sur, FIDOCS, Transcinema, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, and Available Light. This celebration of the array of tastes, interests, and particularities of some of the most talented film programmers and festival directors on both continents is also a portrait of the changing face of independent filmmaking in the Americas. To discover, nurture, and foster these voices through independent distribution models in the online sphere is the abiding mission of our platform.
