‘Cave’ opens Doc NYC

Morris docu to close festival

Werner Herzog’s 3D doc “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” will open the inaugural Doc NYC festival, leading a lineup that finishes with “Tabloid” from Errol Morris.

The Doc NYC screening for “Cave,” about the near-toxic caves of Chauvet in southern France, will be the American preem for the pic, which bowed in Toronto and was acquired by IFC Films. Morris’ “Tabloid” follows the lurid tale of a former Miss Wyoming.

Lineup for the fest’s Viewfinders competition — one of two at Doc NYC — includes the U.S. bow of Cannes alum “Armadillo” plus world preems of Josh Freed’s Flip-cam filmed “Five Weddings and a Felony” and Robert Greene’s family tale “Kati With an I.”

Gotham-centric Metropolis competish includes Josef Birdman Astor’s Carnegie Hall-set “Lost Bohemia”; Ryan Kerrison’s profile of theater pioneer Richard Foreman, “MindFlux”; and David Soll’s look at downtown puppeteer Dan Hurlin, “Puppet.”

Fest also has skedded a tribute to silent film historian and filmmaker Kevin Brownlow, with a conversation days before Brownlow receives an honorary Oscar.

Event is the brainchild of managing director John Vanco, a..d. Thom Powers and exec director Raphaela Neihausen, the trio behind IFC Center’s “Stranger Than Fiction” series of docu screenings. IFC Center provides the base for Doc NYC, with screenings also held at NYU. Fest runs Nov. 3-9.
