“The American Documentary Film festival doesn’t merely screen cinematic portrayals of life. It shows us real life in all its wonder.”
Dr. Jonathan Lorenzo Yorba, The Community Foundation
“AmDocs is already the premiere doc festival on the west coast! The strength in programming, attention to filmmakers, and outreach to the community make it a rare and wonderful event in the film world.”
Zachary Kerschberg, 2 time AmDocs filmmaker
“Not only does the AmDoc adventure bring entertainment to desert residents and visitors year round, it serves to educate and provoke meaningful conversations regarding some of the world’s most pressing issues... We are happy to support these efforts as the Presenting Sponsor.”
Vincent J Battaglia, CEO & PRESIDENT Renova Solar
“Thank you both for the most rewarding film festival I've ever attended! Everything was great -- the film presentations, the opportunity to mix and network with filmmakers new and old, the terrific panel discussion on documentary and narrative film, the Q & A with Mr. Bogdanovich, films I otherwise might not have ever been able to see, everything. Many thanks for a warm, very worthwhile experience.”
Ron Rogers, Blue Coast Films
“AmDocs was not only about all the relationships you mentioned on the opening page of your festival program, but also about our relationships with family, with cinema, with the creative process, with other filmmakers, with ourselves and our own humanity, and with an audience with whom we share common feelings.”
Esther Julie-Anne Shubinski, Documentary Production Instructor UCLA
“Congratulations on putting together such a successful event with such a special atmosphere. I know first-hand how hard it is to create the kind of "buzz" found at AmDocs, which provides such a supportive environment for film-makers and such great access for the public in terms of meeting the guests etc. You and your team did Palm Springs - and documentary cinema - proud.”
Neil Young, Writer/Contributor Hollywood Reporter
