Created in 2010 by Sara Archambault, Sean Flynn and Ben Fowlie, the DocYard has quickly become one of Boston’s most respected cinematic events, screening a combination of new works from emerging filmmakers and classics from some of the region’s most distinguished filmmakers like Frederick Wiseman and Ross McElwee. Now in its fifth edition, the series was recently recognized with a special commendation from the Boston Society of Film Critics for “presenting a vibrant forum for the Boston documentary community to see important new non-fiction works and to have meaningful discussions with the filmmakers.” In 2014, The DocYard won a BostInno 50 on Fire Media Award, for “establishing itself as a destination film festival for the genre” in Boston.
The DocYard is a program of the LEF Foundation. Founding sponsors include the Camden International Film Festival, Principle Pictures, and the LEF Foundation. Series sponsors include the Tyler Family Foundation and the Irving House at Harvard.
