Welcome to Silverdocs 2009

The seventh ediction of the Documentary Film Festival "Silverdocs" will run from Monday, June 15th through Monday June 22nd. "Silverdocs" will present 122 films representing 58 countries selected from 1,983 submissions with seven World, three North American, 12 US, and 14 east coast premieres, plus 12 retrospective films.

The films will be screened in six sections: Sterling US Feature Competition, Sterling World Feature Competition, Best Music Documentary, Silver Spectrum, Sterling Short Films and Special Programs. And its International Documentary Conference will explore storytelling in an ‘always on’ world, with a particular emphasis on youth, craft and next generation media artists. Tom Bernard, Sony Pictures Classics co-president and co-founder, will be this year’s featured speaker addressing “The Future is Strange”.

But the most important thing is... the films. The site for independent filmmakers "IndieWire" has published the selection in this link.

To get warmer, just enjoy this interview at Silverdocs with Martin Scorsese in 2006.
