DOCNYC PRO Only In New York is co-presented by Showtime Documentary Films.

2017 is SOLD OUT – We are very sorry but due to a high volume of responses, we are no longer selling access to these meetings

For the second year at DOC NYC, Only In New York meetings take place November  13-16, 2017, from the hours of 10:00 am – 4:00 pm at Cinepolis Chelsea.  This program features four days of networking sessions that allow filmmakers to get face time with key decision makers in the worlds of financing, postproduction, distribution, festival programming and more. The meetings are a chance for filmmakers to sit in intimate groups (maximum 4 people) with decision makers for a 30 minute Q&A session. This isn’t a pitch forum but instead, a chance for making introductions.

Industry guests include representatives from HBO Documentary Films, Discovery, Ford Foundation | JustFilms, Vulcan Productions, Picture Motion, and A&E IndieFilms.  Revisit this page daily as additional participants will be announced.
