This year's festival includes an International Selection of 21 feature-length films and 2 shorts, most of which are U.S. or New York premieres that will be presented by the filmmakers.

The festival also features New Cuban Shorts, a spotlight on films by emerging Cuban filmmakers, many of which have never before been seen in the U.S.; and MoMA Selects: POV, which highlights award-winning films from the past 25 years of Public Television's longest-running showcase for independent documentary film-plus a sneak preview of a title in the upcoming season. Documentary Fortnight is organized by Sally Berger, Assistant Curator, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art. The Selection Committee consists of Sally Berger; Chi-hui Yang, independent curator; and Michael Gitlin, documentary filmmaker. The exhibition is presented in collaboration with Ambulante, Americas Media Initiative, California Newsreel, Cinema Tropical, POV, and True/False Film Festival.
