In Movies:
2009 Silverdocs Documentary Festival


Running from 15 to 22 June, in the shadow of co-sponsor Discovery Channel’s headquarters (the American Film Institute is the other co-sponsor), the 2009 Silverdocs Documentary Festival brought over 120 non-fiction films to Silver Spring, Maryland, just a few metro stops away from downtown D.C. The result was a rewarding and refreshing event, offering classic and independent documentaries and previewing several that will crop up over the next year or two on PBS, HBO, various Discovery outlets, and the occasional brave art-house theater screen…

Full feature coverage of Silverdocs (with images, trailers, and so much more) is up at PopMatters.
