DOXA Documentary Film Festival

Vancouver, Various Venues
The annual festival celebrates documentary films from around the world with public screenings, panel discussions, public forums, educational programs and more.

The opening-night documentary is the musical The Road Forward, a BC First Nations history and a portrait of a people who have retained their power and identity through community and activism.

Other films include:

Swagger, Olivier Babinet portrays a group of minority teenagers living in a troubled neighborhood outside of Paris.

Waking the Sleeping Giant, a school bus driver, an anti-poverty activist, the organizers of Democracy Spring, and Senator Bernie Sanders come together in an intersectional coalition to offer a glimmer of hope in these dark days.

Vancouver: No Fixed Address, Charles Wilkinson’s new film tackles housing from multiple perspectives.

A new program, entitled Spotlight on Troublemakers, celebrates people who wreak havoc and disrupt business as usual with a selection of films that resist, rage, and fight for real change. Rabid dissent and gonzo defiance are given voice by actress Cate Blanchett in the guise of a baker’s dozen of characters in the flagship film Manifesto.

The festival takes place at the Vogue Theatre, Vancity Theatre, the Cinematheque, Orpheum Annex, SFU's Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, and the Museum of Vancouver.


Creative BC is a Major Sponsor of the DOXA Documentary Film Festival.
