40 UNDER 40

Now in its fourth year, the 40 Under 40 list shines a spotlight on emerging talent. This program is co-presented by HBO Documentary Films.

The 40 Under 40 selection process begins with an open call for nominations for filmmakers based in the U.S. and Canada. The final list of honorees was chosen by a selection committee that included DOC NYC staff and leading industry decision-makers. In addition to directors, the list encompasses talent working in producing, editing, cinematography, and other creative roles.
