The 2015 program includes a handful of music documentaries well over 100 feature-length and short nonfiction films, most of them relatively little seen.
The 2016 edition of The American Documentary Film Festival and Film Fund (AmDocs) will include seventeen diverse films submitted to the festival by North South Documentary Network partners. NSDN films cover a variety of topics ranging from immigration to invasion, but cover them in a way that may surprise American audiences. In other films, the subject, and the subjects of the films about immigration, are even less likely to be familiar to American audiences, but their stories are still quite poignant.
True to the NSDN mission, many of the films submitted by NSDN partners capture cultures and situations that are quite foreign, but at the same time so familiar in the scheme of human experience. A number of this year’s NSDN films focus on particular people, and the often unusual circumstances they find themselves in. From comedy and dramas to horror and documentaries - the history of cinema goes back decades.
Now it its fifth edition the AmDocs takes place in beautiful Palm Springs, and is a film festival that continues to push the envelope on how a film festival is defined.
While all the films delivered a different concept, I found the ones below to be exceptionally intriguing.
A film that needs no introduction, Brothers Keeper, was directed by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky. Brilliantly following the trial of The Ward Brothers (four brothers who lived in poverty on their 99 acre farm in a two-bedroom shack in Central New York that did not have running water or toilet), who's life shattered when one of the boys was found dead in the bed he shared with his brother Delbert. Following the murder mystery of The Ward Brothers the film displays larger social issues, poverty, as well as the American justice system. It was a great weekend filled with documentaries that brilliantly showcased a variety of pressing issues in today's society - unapologetically.
The American Documentary Film Festival and Film Fund, which is scheduled to open on March 27, 2014 and run through March 31, 2014 in Palm Springs, CA, is proud to announce its Opening Night Films, and its first two Official Selections for 2014.
Decades after the end of apartheid and Nelson Mandela’s election as South Africa’s first black president, the nation struggles to fulfill the promise of a transformed society.

When the opera school opened its doors to black students after apartheid, faculty members were awed by the wave of gifted singers that poured in.
The American Documentary Film Festival is a presentation of The Palm Springs Cultural Center. Experience an entire year with the people who work in the harshest conditions on Earth.  For the first time, we get a complete, unflinching look at everyday life on the mysterious frozen continent of Antarctica.

Immigration, for example, is the subject of Transient Hotel, and may at first seem to be a subject with which many Americans are familiar, as it is about deported Mexican migrants. Paulina, for example, submitted by EDoc, is the story of a Peruvian woman asked to leave her home because her neighbors believe she started the fire that destroyed their village. More films, and more stories about real people, and real issues from cultures and countries oll over the world, all screening at AmDocs 2016, thanks to its membership in the NSDN. Over the years many film festivals showcase and celebrate filmmakers, actors, and crew in order to honor the power of storytelling through film.
As Teddy Grouya, director of the AmDocs and film fund, stated, "AmDocs (is)  seeing the bigger picture, one film at a time and where art meets reality". At the University of Cape Town’s once all-white opera school, both the struggle and the promise are embodied in an enormously talented group of classical singers from the black townships.
Many learned opera in competitive community choirs in the townships, while others heard it only on TV. Its mission is to provide independent documentary filmmakers with greater access to worldwide audiences, and help bridge the gap between the diverse cultures that exist throughout the world. In this case, however, the retailers are two Croatian women who sell religious calendars and rosaries - in sun, in snow, in rain, on Sundays and holidays - from their booths located just outside the village church.

The Call, a Brazilian film, tells the story of 87 year old Lázaro, who gets a phone for the first time in his life - a phone that can allow him to speak to his son, who he has not seen or spoken to for many years.
There is one more film festival that perfectly does just that - The American Documentary Film Festival (AmDocs).
After experiencing such loss comedian Margaret Cho decided to spread the message, "Don't grieve Robin, Be Robin.".
Congrats to the filmmakers for once again shedding light and creating films that continue to inspire. Today, the school is two-thirds black and mixed race, and is achieving greater success than ever in propelling graduates to the world opera stage.
Another film, Kang e Defa: A Female Rhapsody in Kosova, explores the tradition of the weeping night - a night of singing and companionship organized by the village women the night before a bride is sent away for an arranged marriage to an unknown man. Tobias, from Mexico, tells the story of a barefoot mountain boy and his journey toward professional basketball, and Blomberg’s Secrets, the Swedish explorer Rolf Blomberg, who studied the Galapagos Islands and settled in Quito, as told through his films, photographs and drawings. Through the streets on Santa Ana Peterson has created bonds and memories with the homelesswhen all they needed was love and the security of having a "friend". Through spreading awareness about homelessness and mental health Cho has assisted in raising money as well as donating much needed items such as clothing, food, and items needed for personal hygiene to those in need. Yet another tale that may seem strange, but is a testament to human determination, is Kings of Nowhere, the story of three families who continue to try to live their lives and maintain their livelihoods despite the fact that their town in Northwest Mexico is largely abandoned due to the fact that seasonal flooding leaves it partially submerged.
Cohen & her team travel with the students from their townships, where they’ve faced financial hardship (and, in some cases, health struggles) to Cape Town, where they perform in the city’s Opera Hall (once a flash point in the anti-apartheid movement), and to New York, where they sing at the prestigious Glimmerglass Festival.
He has bought vans, food, and more in order to spread kindness and cheer through his big heart and willingness to help others. Along the way, they confront many obstacles — from racial politics to tuberculosis and illness, to family fears that opera is not a suitable career.
