New York’s DOC NYC starts today with a weeklong showcase of the best and biggest names in documentary. As a handy guide, we’ve rounded up our reviews, features, and interviews on some of the films screening at the festival. Not to be missed is the festival’s “Shortlist” selection that includes a spotlight on 15 films that could (or should?) make the Oscar shortlist for Best Documentary Feature next month. It’s one-stop shopping for many of the best films from the non-fiction world released this year.

Features and Interviews

  • The Freshmen – Pat Mullen
    - Attiya Khan and Larry Jackman’s A Better Man is one of the notable Canadian first features this year with its innovative approach to discussing rehabilitation and domestic violence.
