Only in its third year, the American Documentary Film has already been named “one of the world's 5 coolest documentary film festivals” by MovieMaker and is, in its 3rd annual edition, set to showcase more than 130 films. In showcasing documentary features and shorts, plus animated shorts, from filmmakers around the world, the festival’s goal is “to promote a world vision of film as seen through the eyes of the filmmaker.” This year’s festival kicks off with an Opening Night Gala featuring the screening of a 2014 Academy Award® finalist in the Best Animated Short category, a stirring, surrealist symphony and lyrical cry for peace called Gloria Victoria, followed by the West Coast theatrical premiere of I Live to Sing, with New York Emmy® Award- winning director Julie Cohen in attendance, in addition to special live, in-person vocal performances by the film's cast.
