How do documentary festival programmers select movies? What is the role of festivals in the ever-changing landscape of film distribution?
The documentary film world has expanded at an astounding rate over the past few years. Along with increased production, there are now more outlets for exhibition and distribution than ever before. At the heart of this network are film festivals across the globe; from long-running traditional fests seeking to expand their doc sections, to upstart festivals dedicated to the art of nonfiction filmmaking. Festival programmers act as filters selecting top docs from thousands of submissions annually, and continue to shape the wider landscape for distribution. Along with showcasing conventional documentaries, film festivals are also embracing nonfiction in a variety of aesthetics and continue to engage audiences with panels, special events, and instillations.
On the cusp of the fourth annual Cinema Eye Honors, whose mission is to recognize the honor exemplary craft and innovation in nonfiction film (taking place this Tuesday at the Museum of the Moving Image), we bring together some of the top documentary programmers working today for discussion. Joining us is Sky Sitney from Silverdocs, Ben Fowlie from the Camden International Film Festival, Charlotte Selb from the Montréal International Documentary Festival (RIDM), and Basil Tsiokos from Sundance. Each programmer will give an introduction to their festival and programming philosophy, share a stand out doc they have been involved in presenting recently, and talk about what they look for in submissions as well as general trends happening in the documentary festival world today. Following this there will be an opportunity for audience comments and questions.

Sky Sitney is the Festival Director for SILVERDOCS, based at the AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center in Silver Spring, MD. She began working for the Festival in Fall 2005. Sky was formerly Programming Director at The Newport International Film Festival and is recognized as one of the key contributors in helping Newport become one of the leading regional Festivals of its kind. She also served as the Film Programmer at the New York Underground Film Festival and was Co-Founder and Curator for the on-going series Fresh Film at the Anthology Film Archives in New York. Sky has also held industry positions at C-Hundred Film Corp. and Fine Line Features.In addition to her extensive programming experience, she is a doctoral candidate in Cinema Studies at New York University, where she has taught film courses on a variety of genres. She is completing a dissertation on the subject of documentary film, sections of which have been published recently in the journal Grey Room and the book Captured: A Lower East Side Film & Video History.

Benjamin Fowlie is the founder and director of the Camden International Film Festival, which takes place each fall along the coast of Maine and is now in its seventh year. Recently, the festival was recognized in the second edition of the Top 25 Film Festivals for Documentaries list found on AJ Schnack’s blog, ALL THESE WONDERFUL THINGS.
