Doc/Fest 2011 line-up announced

Work from Martin Scorsese and Morgan Spurlock, plus Adam Curtis, Terry Pratchett and more.

by Jennie Kermode

The full list of films for this year's Doc/Fest has now been announced. Highlights include Martin Scorsese's Letter To Elia, about the director whose reputation was destroyed by his collaboration with the McCarthy investigations, and Morgan Spurlock's Pom Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, a no-holds-barred look at product placement. Adam Curtis will introduce his new film All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace and Asif Kapadia will discuss F1 documentary Senna. Plus much-loved writer Terry Pratchett will present his film Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die, a very personal look at the options for assisted suicide, and will give a masterclass in what is expected to be one of his final public appearances.

This year's films are organised around four main themes: Art, Bent, Green and Music. There will also be a strand focusing on protest films, some of which explore the current revolutionary uprisings in the Middle East. As always, we'll be bringing you extenmsive coverage here at Eye For Film.
