    Name: Inaugural DocLands Documentary Film Festival, presented by the California Film Institute (home of the Mill Valley Film Festival)
    Date: May 10, 2017 - May 14, 2017
    Event Description:
    Presented by the California Film Institute, the inaugural DocLands Documentary Film Festival brings compelling stories and the provocative insights behind them to Marin County, California May 10 – 14, 2017.

    DocLands is a new, non-competitive, inclusive festival dedicated to building connections and partnerships that will invigorate the business and art of nonfiction filmmaking. Through public screenings, engaged conversations and grassroots networking events, DocLands aims to build an active, involved and fully supportive community around documentary film, with organizational goals that include gender equality and zero waste.

    DocLands will showcase documentary film in a variety of genres and with a diversity of content, while exploring three main programming strands (listed below) and highlighting films that transcend the traditional definition of the documentary—films that break form in terms of creativity and entertainment.

    WonderLands will lift our spirits through stories of joy, wonder and possibility.

    The Great Outdoors will transport us outside to truly appreciate, explore and ultimately compel us to save and conserve our environment and the wilds of our one precious and precarious planet.

    The Art of Impact will engage and spark action by sharing stories that open our eyes to the global community and its disparate cultures, politics, personal narratives, and biographies.

    We believe truth can be found in documentary film.

    Watch. Wonder. Get Involved.
