American Documentary Film Festival and Film Fund (AmDocs) Announces 2017 Schedule; Tickets and Passes Now on Sale.
The American Documentary Film Festival and Film Fund (AmDocs) today announced its complete 2017 schedule (available online at AmericanDocumentaryFilmFestival.com). The festival, which is celebrating its sixth year, will feature over 140 documentary films from all over the world during its six day run. The opening night film, Le Ride, which documents the first English speaking team to compete in the Tour de France, leads an all star line-up of documentary films, and includes a number of premieres, as well as several films being screened as part of the North South Doc Network (NSDN).
The American Documentary Film Festival and Film Fund (AmDocs), named "one of the world's top 25 film festivals worth the entry fee" by MovieMaker Magazine, has quickly grown to be the premiere documentary film festival on the West Coast, and is on course to also be the largest. “Our goal, all along,” said founder and Festival Director Ted Grouya, “was to create a forum to celebrate and promote documentary film - and the independent filmmakers around the world who bring knowledge and awareness through their stories about real people and real issues. We believe AmDocs has been able to accomplish this, and more, in its short tenure, both because of the quality of the films we’ve been able to secure, and because audiences in Palm Springs, and to a larger degree, all of Southern California, support independent film, and independent filmmakers.”
Passes for AmDocs went on sale earlier this month, both on-line at AmericanDocumentaryFilmFestival.com and in person at the Camelot Theatres. Now tickets to all screenings are available, and the complete schedule can be viewed on-line as well. Tickets for Opening Night include both the film screening and Q&A, as well as the Opening Night Reception. Several pass options are also available, ranging from BIG Deal Passes (which allow purchasers entry into the Opening Night screening and reception, as well as to all screenings), to the Flex Express Passes (which grant access to all screenings), or the Six for Five Movie Lover Passes, for those whose schedules may not allow them to see an unlimited number of screenings.
The American Documentary Film Festival and Film Fund (AmDocs) is part of the Palm Springs Cultural Center, a local nonprofit established on 2007 by Ric and Rozene Supple. The Palm Springs Cultural Center was established to encourage the development of the cultural arts in the Coachella Valley with a specific focus in the areas of film, fine art, live performance, dance, music, and community festivals. The Center is dedicated to advancing education, to nurturing community-wide participation in the cultural arts, and to sponsoring scholarship awards for deserving individuals.
Tickets and Passes for the 2017 edition of The American Documentary Film Festival are available now at americandocumentaryfilmfestival.org, or in person at the Camelot Theatres Box Office.
