AFI Docs 2013 in Brief, Part One

i learn americaI’m back from a few days in Washington DC, where I covered the first edition of AFI Docs, which for the past decade has been centered in nearby Silver Spring MD as Silverdocs. I wrote two pieces for Indiewire about the event that were just published this morning. The first considers what this geographical move could end up meaning for the festival’s programming focus, while the second offers my thoughts on five new docs – AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY, DOCUMENTED, I LEARN AMERICA (pictured), LOST FOR LIFE, and THE NEW BLACK – that will be sure to make their way to several other festivals in the coming months. As time allows, I plan to post here later this week on some additional titles that were part of this year’s inaugural DC line up.
