New York’s best things to do 2012

Best documentary programming: STF

“This expertly curated, long-running screening-and-discussion series brings docs, their filmmakers and—occasionally—their subjects to the IFC Center most Tuesday nights. Over the years, hosts Thom Powers and Raphaela Neihausen have wrangled some marquee names (Michael Moore, Jonathan Demme, Albert Maysles), but the duo’s ability to spotlight emerging filmmakers is equally impressive.”


“STF, the indispensable series.”


“It’s time: Like doves to Capistrano, lovers of the documentary form should head west each Tuesday to catch the best of the latest at IFC’s intrepid series…  Thom Powers and Raphaela Neihausen’s documentary series, Stranger Than Fiction, makes for an excellent weekly retreat.”
