Amy Berg's An Open Secret may still have its world premiere at DOC NYC on November 14 pending further notice from the production company.

Berg, in support of her debut feature film Every Secret Thing which stars Diane Lane, Elizabeth Banks, Dakota Fanning and Nate Parker, appeared with directors Aaron Katz (Land Ho!); Megan Griffiths (Lucky Them); Adam Rapp (Loitering With Intent) and Stephen Belber (Match) with moderator Mark Adams for a Tribeca Talks: Pen to Paper - Adaptation & Creation panel in April. She spoke about the cooperation between Laura Lippman, the author, and her producer Frances McDormand.

At this point, An Open Secret remains an unopened secret due to the fact that the scheduled press screening was cancelled earlier this week and the divide between Berg and Esponda Productions.

"DOC NYC regrets to announce that today's [November 4, 2014] press screening of AN OPEN SECRET is cancelled at the request of the film's rights-holder, Esponda Productions."

The DOC NYC film screening is sold out and Amy Berg was originally scheduled to appear for a discussion on An Open Secret.
