Now in its 15th edition DOCS BARCELONA contributes to an industry sector that is often left in the dark during  times of financial crisis.

On January 31st documentary film lovers can enjoy a week-long festival of documentaries showing at some of the city’s most iconic cultural locations. Thanks to a the generosity of these sponsors , Docs Barcelona continues to showcase the best documentary films  presented to a city whose never-ending thirst for culture is refreshing.

Unique in its format, Docs Barcelona acts as a springboard for lesser known international documentary directors as well as covering  a wealth of topics and points of views. From the periphery to the mainstream you can find all of this years selection here.

Docs Barcelona also serves as a platform for unfinished documentaries by helping unite independent film-makers with financial assistance in order to help these films receive regional and local distribution.  The festival has now become the third largest  financial forum in this aspect of the industry.  Each year the festival gathers more than 300 professionals from 36 countries and provides a forum which helps young directors sharpen their pitches and correctly market their film in order to help them gain the maximum exposure when promoting their work.
