Our theme, Embracing Diversity in American Storytelling, highlights our belief in the transformative power of documentary film to bridge communities and backgrounds.

We’re deeply committed to championing independent storytellers from around the world. We offer audiences fresh and alternative viewpoints on universal themes and meet them where they watch.

At AmDoc, we often ask ourselves: who gets to tell stories that reach the public?

Join us for an immersive showcase of each of our series and meet the dedicated teams behind them. Explore our work with interactive activities and mingle with our vibrant community.

You can leave your black-tie at home, but festive attire is encouraged!

Please note: American Documentary will make every effort to provide universal access to all of our events. Please contact communications@pov.org to request disability accommodations. Advance notice is requested to arrange for some accessibility needs.

We are so thankful for the support of our Host Committee:

Co-Chairs: Chris Plaut and Nancy Winkelstein Plaut
