International Documentary Film Festival

Since 1997, DocsBarcelona has worked on sharing and encouraging the documentary genre in two ways: through the festival, by sharing documentaries with the general public, and by activities focused on industry professionals to encourage documentary making.

The festival is a pioneering commitment to the documentary genre, and has had an international impact through several film showings outside the continent: DocsBarcelona + Medellín (Colombia) and SurDocs Barcelona (Chile), with the festival aiming to showcase Latin American documentaries in Europe.

These other events complement each other and broaden the scope of DocsBarcelona, beyond film screenings in different parts of the city, with training programmes, workshops, master-classes and special sessions, etc.
