About Union Docs
Based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, UnionDocs is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to present a broad range of innovative and thought-provoking non-fiction projects to the general public, while also cultivating specialized opportunities for learning, critical discourse, and creative collaboration for emerging media-makers, theorists, and curators.
Our local screenings, exhibitions and lectures attract people from New York City and beyond, promoting dialogue about significant social questions and expanding popular awareness of the documentary arts. Expert panels and discussions from these events are recorded, archived, and made available online to growing national and international audiences. For individuals in their early careers, The UnionDocs Collaborative is a program that deeply engages current modes of non-fiction and facilitates the annual production of a group project.
UnionDocs seeks to support compelling, creative work in this field because we believe that documentary art, when paired with thoughtful context and open debate, is an invaluable tool for understanding the complexities of contemporary life and creating a better society.
