Welcome to the 18th edition of Document, and to our first online festival - running Monday 25 to Sunday 31 January!
Whilst we’re still very much in the eye of the storm, both globally and at home, we hope that this edition offers an engaging and social space for us to come together to affirm our shared relationship to human rights and love for innovative, thought-provoking films.
Through screenings and events addressing historic and real-time erasure of lives and experiences, this edition takes a deep dive into the ‘politics of viewing’ and the role of cinema in a world of perpetual emergency. Films in the programme offer a counterpoint to the dominant flows of images and media that saturate our daily lives - generating complex and personal responses that prompt new ways to look at the world, and hope of claiming agency and solidarity.
The film programme is available for individual rental (£5 full price / £3 concessions), or as a Festival Pass bundle containing all the films included in the programme (£15 full price / £10 concessions). If you would like to pay the concessions price, add the promo code ‘PAY3’ at checkout for individual tickets, and ‘PAY10‘ for the Festival Pass.
We have a limited number of community tickets (which provide free access to watch the films). Again, no proof is required, just get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will facilitate that.
