Doc Fortnight 2018: MoMA’s International Festival of Nonfiction Film and Media

Doc Fortnight, MoMA’s annual international festival of nonfiction film, returns for its 17th year with 12 days of innovative approaches to documentary filmmaking from February 15-26. Featuring a diverse assortment of feature and short films from across the globe, the festival continues to highlight the vibrant and varied styles of independent filmmakers—both emerging and established—around the world.

Recognizing the recent passing of award-winning filmmaker, Jonathan Demme, this year’s festival includes a retrospective of several documentaries made during his prolific career. At a time of escalating sociopolitical tension, Doc Fortnight continues its history of showcasing nonfiction film that challenges our perceptions of the changing world and the traditional model of documentary cinema.

Organized by Kathy Brew, Guest Curator, with Gianna Collier-Pitts

The exhibition is supported by the Annual Film Fund.
