Homer Theatre’s Fifteenth Annual Documentary Film Festival will begin next week. Jamie Sutton owns the theater, and he said when the festival first started, it showed just four documentaries.
Now, the week-long festival shows nine. Sutton said it’s easier and cheaper to make documentaries than ever before making it the genre’s golden era.
“There are a lot more stories that can be told, which is really the notion and so you ended up with a diversity like this that you wouldn't have otherwise,” he said.
