About the Festival

THE 17TH ANNUAL ICDOCS WILL TAKE PLACE APRIL 30-MAY 02, 2020.

UPDATE: The 17th Annual Iowa City International Film Festival (ICDOCS) will be presented as a free live-streamed three-day event April 30-May 2, 2020. We made the decision to suspend all in-person events for ICDOCS due to growing health concerns surrounding COVID-19, and instead present short films in competition, moderated Q&As with filmmakers following the film screenings and special programs entirely online. In addition, Jurors will fulfill their commitment of reviewing programmed films in competition.

Mission Statement
The Iowa City International Documentary Film Festival (ICDOCS) is an annual event run by students at the University of Iowa. Our mission is to engage local audiences with the exhibition of recent short films that explore the boundaries of nonfiction filmmaking. We seek innovative new works of 30 minutes or less that both complicate and expand upon conventional approaches to nonfiction and documentary.
