Presented by the California Film Institute, the inaugural DocLands Documentary Film Festival is set to bring compelling stories and the provocative insights behind them to Marin County. A new, non-competitive, inclusive festival dedicated to building connections and partnerships that will invigorate the business and art of nonfiction filmmaking, DocLands aims to build an active, involved and fully supportive community around documentary film, with organizational goals that include gender equality and zero waste. Documentary films in a variety of genres and with a diversity of content will be showcased, while exploring three main programming strands and highlighting films that transcend the traditional definition of the documentary. WonderLands will lift our spirits through stories of joy, wonder and possibility. The Great Outdoors will transport us outside to truly appreciate, explore and ultimately compel us to save and conserve our environment and the wilds of our one precious and precarious planet. The Art of Impact will engage and spark action by sharing stories that open our eyes to the global community and its disparate cultures, politics, personal narratives and biographies.
