Founded in 2016 by Bhawin Suchak and Darian Henry who are also co-founders of Youth FX, NeXt Doc is a week-long fellowship program that is a partnership of Youth FX and the Logan Non-Fiction program at the Carey Institute for Global Good.  The program is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for young documentary filmmakers, an intensive, residential experience, designed to bolster their capacity to succeed professionally and creatively at the beginning stage of their career. Our organizing team has a strong commitment to diversifying the documentary field and amplifying the voices of young filmmakers from marginalized communities.
