Industry Roundtables

Submissions for 2022 are closed. Selections will take place in September.

DOC NYC’s Industry Roundtables program–formerly known as Only In New York–facilitates face-to-face meetings between leading industry decision-makers and filmmakers with works-in-progress. This program is co-presented by Showtime Documentary Films.

Part of DOC NYC PRO, the festival’s industry and educational program, Industry Roundtables presents an opportunity for film teams with shorts, features and episodic projects to join lively roundtable-format information sessions with key industry figures from the fields of distribution, philanthropic funding, financing, PR, marketing, social impact, festival programming, and more. In advance of each year’s November festival, DOC NYC curates the most promising documentaries of the future for industry consideration, and selects these projects for Industry Roundtables from a competitive pool of online submissions. Filmmakers honored with the annual 40 Under 40 recognition are also eligible to participate. 

Past industry attendees have included representatives from Amazon Studios, Blue Ice Docs, A&E, Chicken & Egg Pictures, Cinetic Media, Disney+, Endeavor Content, Firelight Media, HBO, IFC Films, Hulu, Impact Partners, Kickstarter, National Geographic, Netflix, NBC News Studios, Participant, Showtime Documentary, Sony Pictures Classics, Submarine Entertainment, Sundance Institute, Netflix, The New York Times, The New Yorker, TIME Studios, Topic Studios, Vice Media, and others.
