Each year, NFMLA receives thousands of submissions. Programming selections are based not only on the merits of a project but are designed to fulfill the criteria in regard to our mission, considerations for the Best of NFMLA Awards, and to ensure that NFMLA delivers diverse and original content consistently to the standard that we have upheld for the past 10 years.
We are especially affected by the overwhelming flood of incredible documentary projects of important topics & unforgettable stories that we have been unable to place due to the limited festival programming slots available. As a result NFMLA is pleased to present DocuSlate, an entire day dedicated to documentary films, in partnership with the International Documentary Association (IDA).
Screenings start at 10:30 am with 5 feature films and will close with an eclectic collection of short documentary films. In between film programs, audiences can check out filmmaker Q&A’s or meet and mingle with one another in the premium South Park Center lounge over refreshments and cocktails.
