Each year the festival curates world class feature and short documentaries direct from some of the hottest most prestigious documentary film festivals in the world, such as Sheffield Doc Fest, Traverse City Film Festival, Doc NYC, SXSW, Doc Edge, and IDFA.


But what matters to us most is documentaries that are well-made, compelling, thought provoking, passionate, and relevant to Australian audiences.

*       70% of our feature documentaries were later offered distribution deals on VOD in Australia.
