This festival is to be focused on this type of films. You will have specific recognition for the documentary you made, in a festival dedicated to documentaries.

Why is this so important ? Because sometimes, documentaries are just another category in some film festivals. We think documentaries deserve more attention, and we want to contribute giving it to them.


We will only select and screen short documentaries, not over 15 or 20 minutes maximum. If you made a full feature documentary, we will not be able to select it yet, but maybe in the years to come.

We are seeking for original documentaries, that can explore the world for us, bring some issues and analysis to the table, whether you shot it with a DSLR or a top 4K+ camera.

We accept all themes and langage. If not english speaking we require english subtitles.

Overall Rating
  • Thrilled to have my first entry for documentary still picture which I took during my Grade 12 Blyth Academy Global High School term 4 visiting Nicaragua, "For Right and Justice" winning the Best Documentary Photography Award. This was an excellent learning and development experience for me. The event has been run professionally with effective communication. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the organizing team for making this event happened. An invaluable experience, will continue to participate and make submissions. Thanks again.
