Coming up quickly in the Theatre Wakefield calendar is the third annual Wakefield Doc Fest Weekend, a special program of the Wakefield Doc Fest that runs in the fall. It takes a different approach than the main festival by using a particular theme to link four films shown over the weekend. This year’s fest takes place October 12th through the 14th at the Centre Wakefield La Pêche in beautiful downtown Wakefield.
Like the main festival in February, Wakefield Doc Fest Weekend screens a curated selection of the very best in current national and international documentary films, and seeks to provide the audience with unique opportunities to explore the films’ themes through experiential enhancements such as filmmaker visits, panel discussions, expert and academic presentations and the like.
So mark your calendars now – October 12 – 14, 2018 – and prepare to spend a thought-provoking weekend viewing a selection of the best current feature-length documentary film… and watch for word of this year’s theme and lineup!
