A message from the AmDocs 2021 team:

Dear Friends Of AmDocs And Lovers Of Film-
 
Our 10th Annual Event, yes, that’s right, many of you have been attending our festival for ten years now, amazing, will be virtual again due to Covid 19 restrictions. 
 
Beginning March 26 through April 4 you will be able to stream our 2021 films on Docs Now Plus. Some of you subscribed last year and enjoyed the opportunity to experience a wide variety of works from around the world in your home or on the road. I personally watched on Roku TV as well as on Apple TV.  The on-line festival will be available for just $35.88 and will include a bonus 12 month subscription to DocsNow+ (The traditional in-person 6 for 5 pass is $45 and the all access pass is $225 for context.) For those who are already subscribed, you will need to unsubscribe from your current plan, (go to Manage Subscription to cancel your current service); you will then need to purchase this pass in order to view the festival. Your subscription will allow full access to the festival as well as to the site’s films after the event for 12 months!) 
 
To start watching the festival on March 26th just click the AmDocs2021Pass button at:
 
 
(Note, you must subscribe via the website before accessing through the apps. Film festival program will be available to view at any time during the festival dates and begins midnight, March 26th.)   You can go to amdocfilmfest.comas well as architecturedesignartfilmfestival.com to preview the majority of programmed films. I can tell you, we have some new, fantastic works that you will want to binge watch!
 
Let’s try to turn the lack of social events into a positive and support the festival, wherever we might be, and enjoy ourselves while doing it. 
 
We hope you are excited about the 10th Annual festival and look forward to seeing you again in person in 2022!
 
 
Teddy Grouya
Director,
