City Paper is not for tourists
The Silverdocs festival just announced that next year’s festival will take place between June 16 and June 23—-two days longer than this year’s event. That’s more dates, but not more documentaries. The press release explains:
SILVERDOCS: AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival announced today the expansion of the Festival by two days and the addition of venues to meet demand for SILVERDOCS offerings following last year’s higher demand for shows and increase in industry participation. The Festival will run from Monday, June 16 through Monday, June 23, increasing from a six-day to an eight-day event, with the last day ‘Best of the Fest’ screenings to provide passholders and local audiences an additional opportunity to catch the award winners and most popular films. SILVERDOCS will continue to program 100 documentaries, but the number of screenings per films in the program will increase.
