June 1st - 11th, 2017



Join us as we celebrate our fourth year of bringing compelling documentaries to New Haven . . . all with a unique local flavor.

We are back with a compelling array of new films, many offering fresh insights on the Elm City including:

Our opening night film is the East Coast premiere of I AM SHAKESPEARE, The Henry Green Story. It screens Thursday, June 1st at 7:00pm at the Whitney Humanities Center.

I am Shakespeare (Stephen Dest, 2017)

Tlaxcala Dreams (Sebi Medina-Tayac)

Elegy for the Time Being (Tram Luong, 2017)

and Food Haven (Jim O’Connor, 2017)

This year we also feature a tribute to award-winning cinema verité filmmakers D. A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus, screening many of their films.

That’s just the start! We are screening dozens of documentary features and short––plus there are filmmaking workshops and an amazing student film competition with prizes.
