This year, the largest documentary festival in America has gone virtual! From Wednesday, November 11 to Sunday, November 29, DOC NYC presents over 150 feature-length documentaries and shorts programs, available to watch from home. Almost all films will also be accompanied by an exclusive filmmaker Q&A, included with the ticket. Check out the full lineup here.

BMFI recommends:

Folk singer Karen Dalton was idolized by Bob Dylan and Nick Cave, yet remains unknown to most music fans. Discover her gorgeous, haunting songs with In My Own Time: A Portrait of Karen Dalton.

The Truffle Hunters takes audiences into the forests of Northern Italy alongside a secretive group of foragers in search of the elusive and expensive white Alba truffle.

Examining the events and continuing ramifications of the Philadelphia Police Department’s conflict with the Black revolutionary group MOVE during the 1970s, 40 Years a Prisoner explores one of the most troubling chapters of the city’s history.
