"Dox on the Fox gives the TriCities and surrounding areas an opportunity to see short independent documentaries otherwise not easily accessible," Klein, a Batavia resident and local filmmaker, stated in a news release. "It also gives independent filmmakers a forum to share their art on the big screen."A number of directors will be in attendance for question-and-answer [sessions] after their screenings," Klein said. "We are excited to showcase both local and international filmmakers, some who have shown films each year of the fest. Most films are not available on any streaming platform and can only be seen here or at other festivals." Dox on the Fox is a recipient of a Batavia Arts Council Grant for the third year in a row, and is made possible through community and volunteer support.
