We are THRILLED to announce that our documentary with HBO Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures is one of fifteen documentaries selected for DOC NYC‘s “Short List”!

The stats are impressive: In each of the past three years, the DOC NYC Short List had nine or 10 titles that overlapped with the subsequent Oscar Documentary Short List. For the last five years, DOC NYC screened the documentary that went on to win the Oscar: “Amy” (2015), “Citizenfour” (2014), “20 Feet From Stardom” (2013), “Searching for Sugar Man” (2012), and “Undefeated” (2011).
