IDA's spring showcase takes you behind the scenes of the year's network films and programs.

Previously known as the Awards Spotlight Screening Series, SpringDocs is the new name of IDA's annual showcase of documentary films, from Emmy Awards contenders to festival standouts and new release programming. We bring films and their creators together with industry insiders and film enthusiasts throughout the spring.

SpringDocs 2023 program will be announced in the first week of May. In-person screenings will be held at The Culver Theater and 2220 Arts + Archives in Los Angeles, with a selection of films also available to stream worldwide via our Eventive page.

As always, IDA members will have priority and complimentary access to all screenings. Other guild members (AMPAS, WGA, DGA, PGA, FIND, and Television Academy) are also invited to join the screenings with complimentary admittance. (If you are a guild member and would like to join, please email

New this year: a limited amount of tickets for in-person screenings will be available to purchase by non-members.

Since 2017, the Awards Spotlight showcase has taken IDA members behind the scenes of the year's telecasted Emmy-award contenders.
