The American Documentary and Animation Film Festival (AmDocs) celebrates and promotes documentary film–and the independent filmmakers who bring knowledge and awareness through their stories about real people and issues. The first festival was held in April 2012, with Academy Award-winning director, screenwriter and producer, Oliver Stone, being honored on Opening Night with the “Filmmaker Who Makes A Difference” award and the screening of his provocative documentary “Commandante.” In its inaugural year, AmDocs screened 80 international films in a single theater in Palm Springs.

AmDocs has grown exponentially each year, with annual honorees including Dionne Warwick, Peter Coyote, Peter Bogdanovich, Jamie Redford and Phil Keoghan. Nearly 2000 films were reviewed for screening consideration in the past year, coming from Argentina to Zimbabwe and across the United States. While relatively young, AmDocs has already established important credentials, being recognized internationally as an important venue for filmmakers, being named by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the five “coolest” documentary film festivals in the world.
