The Iowa City International Documentary Film Festival (ICDOCS)
April 30 – May 2, 2020
The 17th Annual Iowa City International Documentary Film Festival (ICDOCS) will be presented as a free live-streamed three-day event April 30-May 2, 2020 on ACRETV.org! The decision was made to suspend all in-person events for ICDOCS due to growing health concerns surrounding COVID-19, and instead present short films in competition, moderated Q&As with filmmakers following the film screenings and special programs entirely online. In addition, Jurors will fulfill their commitment of reviewing programmed films in competition.
ICDOCS is an annual event run by students at the University of Iowa. Our mission is to engage local audiences with the exhibition of recent short films that explore the boundaries of nonfiction filmmaking. We seek innovative new works of 30 minutes or less that both complicate and expand upon conventional approaches to nonfiction and documentary.
