The American Documentary Film Festival (AmDocs) was created as a forum to celebrate and promote documentary film—and the independent filmmakers around the world who bring knowledge and awareness through their stories about real people and issues.
This summer, Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert is again proud to screen films from the series with free admission each Saturday in July at 1:00 p.m.
