Starting today, here in NYC - Documentary Fortnight 2013: MoMA’s International Festival of Nonfiction Film and Media.

It runs through March 4, and includes an international, eclectic list of documentary films that should edutain, and that I'll be checking out - including a focus on Cuban cinema, a Marlon Riggs special tribute (which I already alerted you to), POV films, and more.

Since 2001, each February has marked the return of Documentary Fortnight, MoMA's annual showcase of recent nonfiction film and media. The festival includes an International Selection of 23 films, along with three thematic programs, that examine the relationship between contemporary art and nonfiction filmmaking, and reflect on new areas of nonfiction practice. This year’s thematic programs are New Cuban Shorts, recent documentary films by emerging Cuban filmmakers on Cuban life and history, most of which have never been screened in the U.S.; Marlon Riggs: A Special Tribute (labeled MR below), focusing on a pioneer for independent voices on television; and MoMA Selects: POV (labeled POV below), which highlights award-winning films from the past 25 years of television’s longest-running showcase for independent documentary, including a sneak preview of one of the films in its upcoming season.

For the full lineup, as well as playdates and tickets, visit MoMA's website HERE.
