DOC NYC, the documentary film festival set to run Nov. 8 -15 in New York City, will open with the New York premiere of John Chester’s “The Biggest Little Farm,” which recounts efforts to establish a biodynamic farm and will close with the world premiere of “Breslin and Hamill: Deadline Artists,” a portrait of journalists Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill directed by Jonathan Alter, John Block, and Steve McCarthy.
The festival’s centerpiece presentation will be the world premiere of “Original Cast Album: Co-op,” an episode of IFC’s Documentary Now! series that parodies D.A. Pennebaker’s classic doc “Original Cast Album: Company,” followed by a conversation with creators Seth Meyers and Rhys Thomas, director Alex Buono, writer-star John Mulaney, and star Renee Elise Goldsberry.
The upcoming festival will screen 135 feature-length documentaries among more than 300 films and events overall, organizers announced Thursday as it revealed its lineup.
The complete lineup and schedule can be found at DOC NYC.
