The Palm Springs Cultural Center announces the 7th annual American Documentary Film Festival and Film Fund (AmDocs), April 6 – April 12.

The American Documentary Film Festival and Film Fund is one of the largest docs only festivals in the United States, featuring works from around the world in the documentary feature, documentary short and animated works genres.  This prestigious event is popular for both film-lovers and industry guests.

AmDocs is also a part of the North-South Doc Network, in which several important international film festivals provide access to films within each of the participating festivals programs, thereby creating a formal circuit of festivals that select films will get to screen at.

In support of its commitment to further documentary film awareness and education, AmDocs also carries out a variety of outreach activities, including the AmDocs Film Fund Pitch Competition. U.S. documentary filmmakers are eligible to participate in the Pitch Competition and submit proposals to compete for financing for new projects, as well as works currently in progress.  Film Funds such as this are rare in the U.S. and AmDocs is proud to be able to provide this support.  Past recipients included films that went on to be shortlisted for the Oscars as well as win television's Emmy.
