The Iowa City International Documentary Film Festival (IC DOCS) is an annual event run by students at the University of Iowa. Our mission is to engage local audiences with the exhibition of recent short films that explore the boundaries of nonfiction filmmaking.

The Saturday 3pm show will be Azadeh Navai's juror program, which will be a collection of her work.

Azadeh Navai (born 1985, Iran) holds an MFA in Film and Video from California Institute of the Arts, and a BFA in Graphic Design from University of Tehran. She creates 16mm and digital films with the focus on visual memory, its imprints through time and its fluctuations through age. Her films have been shown in a number of venues, including New York Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Edinburgh International Film Festival, Mothlight Microcinema, Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, San Diego Underground Festival and REDCAT Theater in Los Angeles. Her film Friday Mosque won the Jury Award at Binghamton University Film Festival (SEFF), and her other film Remembering the Pentagons was recently mentioned on Artforum. She also works as a freelance documentary editor in Iran and the United States. Recently, she finished editing a feature documentary called Logan’s Syndrome, and currently, she is working on the creation of a short documentary about her memories of the aftermath of the 1979 Iranian revolution
