The event originated in Los Angeles as an International Documentary Association (IDA) sponsored event. One of the founders of IDA, Paula Lee Haller, relocated to Wilmington. It was her dream to expand IDA events to other venues. After successfully launching the inaugural DocuFest-Wilmington in 2003, the festival is now celebrating its fifteenth year. We are very proud to be part of the vibrant film community in Wilmington and appreciate your support.
Interviews and additional press materials available upon request.
