New York Film Festival is Hot for Docs

By July 26, 2007

Follow me on:

A source within the prestigious New York Film Festival's administration confides that there has been an unprecedented number of documentaries submitted for this year's program. Although the deadline for submissions was July 13, the exact number of nonfiction applicants isn't available because films under consideration are categorized by length--feature, featurette, short--rather than as documentary or narrative.

The percentage of nonfiction films selected to fill the final program's 25 available slots varies annually, depending on the number of documentaries submitted.

The festival's line up will be announced in about two weeks. We'll report the results as soon as they're available.

This year's festival, the 45th edition, takes place over 17 days from September 28 to October 14. This year, films will be screened at Frederick P. Rose Hall in the Time Warner Center instead of at Lincoln Center's Walter Reade Theatre, which is currently undergoing renovation.
