CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: The Gotham and NYTimes Op-Docs Forum

The Gotham (formerly IFP) is teaming up with The New York Times in the search of short documentaries to be considered for the NYTimes Op-Docs forum.

Op-Docs is The New York Times’ editorial department’s award-winning forum for short, opinionated documentaries, produced with wide creative latitude and a range of artistic styles, covering current affairs, contemporary life and historical subjects. Op-Docs are generally 5-10 minutes in length.

The New School is invited to nominate one completed thesis project to be considered for this opportunity. The NYTimes will oversee the selection process and there is no guarantee that any submitted projects will be selected. Any selected projects will receive recognition at the 2022 Gotham Awards on November 28th.

If you are interested in submitting your work, contact Peter Asaro, Director of Media Studies MA Program
