Documentary Fortnight 2012: MoMA’s International Festival of Nonfiction Film and Media

February 16–28, 2012

Established in 2001, MoMA’s annual two-week showcase of recent nonfiction film and media takes place each February. This international selection of films presents a wide range of creative categories that extend the idea of the documentary form, examines the relationship between contemporary art and nonfiction filmmaking, and reflects on new areas of nonfiction practice. This year’s festival includes both feature-length and short documentary films, a retrospective of works from Paper Tiger Television’s 30 years of media activism, and a seminar on database documentary practices—an emergent form of interactive narrative and nonlinear filmmaking that employs computer and Web-based media. The majority of films in the festival are premieres, and filmmakers will be present at most screenings. Special off-site events take place at Light Industry in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and at Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (Closing Night).
