After playing home to such Oscar-winning documentary features as recent winner “Free Solo” and other awards season favorites like “Jane” and “LA 92,” National Geographic Documentary Films is turning its attention to another vibrant side of the doc world: short films.
The debut slate will include documentary shorts “Lost and Found,” from Academy Award-winning director Orlando von Einsiedel, and “The Nightcrawlers” from Academy Award-winning producer Joanna Natasegara and first-time director Alexander A. Mora.
After upcoming festival premieres, both “Lost and Found” and “The Nightcrawlers” will open for a week at the Metrograph in New York City before premiering on the National Geographic Channel in October, followed by a wide digital release.
