Doc Alliance

 DOC ALLIANCE is the result of a creative partnership of six key European documentary film festivals : CPH:DOX Copenhagen, DOK Leipzig, FIDMarseille, Jihlava IDFF, Planete Doc Film Festival and Visions du Réel Nyon.

The aim of Doc Alliance is to support the diverse nature of documentary film and to increase audience awareness of the fascinating possibilities of this genre, which often manages to be more moving than the world of fiction. Doc Alliance represents a dynamic platform offering filmmakers and producers alternative forms of distribution for films that are often difficult to get onto the market. The purpose of Doc Alliance is to help documentary films reach as many viewers as possible, and to systematically support their distribution on the festival market and through its website, DAFilms.com.

Doc Alliance Sélection is an annual selection of five films that Doc Alliance considers exceptional and worthy of special support. Each of Doc Alliance’s partner festivals chooses one film, and all five selections are then presented at all five partner festivals. In this way, the films receive attention and support on five national markets, thus facilitating their future road to audiences through their distribution in cinemas, on television, or on DVD. At the end of the year, an international jury presents the “Doc Alliance Award” at one of the allied festivals.

DAFilms.com is Doc Alliance’s online distribution tool. The website offers Video on Demand and permanent access to more than 600 documentary and experimental films. Audiences and film professionals from around the world can legally watch all the films at DAFilms.com; for a small fee, they can view the films directly on their computer or download them in AVI and DVD format.
DAFilms.com offers a selection of contemporary documentary films from around the world, with an emphasis on European cinema. In addition to offering notable recent films, the website also functions as a film archive of important past documentaries.
Every month, DAFilms.com expands its catalogue with the addition of 20 new titles chosen by the five partner festivals involved in Doc Alliance. The films are selected on the basis of strict dramaturgic criteria, with an emphasis on their social and aesthetic value and signature style. The website is open to all innovative approaches, including progressive or provocative documentaries that stimulate open dialog between filmmakers and viewers. DAFilms.com invites directors, producers, distributors, and students to register their films, thus offering them the possibility to make use of this unique distribution channel.
