Secrets And Lies: The Pat Tillman Story

However, when his promising future ended in unexpected and unnecessary tragedy, the Tillman family refused to accept the “official” story being offered by the military and polit...

Honoring A Documentary Master

Screening on Wednesd...

The Conference brings together leading filmmakers, educators, broadcasters, business leaders, distributors, private a...

The Silverdocs International Film Festival, which ends on Sunday, has a good number of World Premieres to tantalize. Chief among them is tonight's Closing Night Gala screening of THE NINE LIVES OF MARION BARRY, a ...
