Documentary Fortnight 2012

February 16–28, 2012

Documentary Fortnight: MoMA’s International Festival of Nonfiction Film highlights the art of the documentary. Established in 2001, MoMA’s annual two-week showcase of recent nonfiction film and video takes place each February. This selection of international feature-length and short documentaries from around the world represents the wide range of creative categories that extend the idea of the documentary form and reflect on new areas of nonfiction practice. This year’s program includes a selection of over 40 films, performances, and music events, and many of the filmmakers will be present throughout the festival. Discussions follow each film.
