Is Documentary the Most Exciting Kind of Filmmaking? AFI Docs Fest and Cinedigm's Docurama Launch, Watch Greenaway's 'Act of God' (VIDEO)

Last week New York Magazine published film critic David Edelstein's assessment of current documentary as the most interesting and dynamic genre of cinema. His piece points to the currently unspooling Tribeca Film Festival, which champions documentaries and selected "Mistaken for Strangers" -- a doc about indie rock band The National -- for its opening night. Meanwhile the American Film Institute announced its Opening Night and Centerpiece films for the upcoming AFI Docs festival (June 19-23 in Silver Springs, MD), and Cinedigm is launching Docurama, a seven-week theatrical film series on April 22 in 15 national markets.
