About Moving Docs

Moving Docs brings powerful films to screens big and small – films you may never be able to see otherwise.

We enable a selection of European documentaries to cross borders and reach new audiences all over Europe.

These are films with an impact. They make you see the world differently. And they may even change your mind.

Moving Docs is the very first initiative of its kind, powered by our local and national partners across Europe, managed by the European Documentary Network, and supported by Creative Europe.

    The extraordinary release of Raving Iran

    How did a niche documentary by a first-time director, about two unknown Iranian DJs, become one of Germany’s cinematic events of the year? Over 60,000 people in Germany have now seen Raving Iran, the debut feature by Susanne Regina Meures, and a year after its release the film continues to draw interest. On the occasion of the film's online launch in our MOVING DOCS Home Cinema, Kirstin Innes talked to Weronika Adamowska of Raving Iran’s distributors and Moving Docs partners, Rise and Shine Cinema, about how they did it.

    Can family and music help a country find its way back from crisis?

    Chris Silver has watched A FAMILY AFFAIR, our latest addition to the MOVING DOCS Home Cinema. 

    “In order to find yourself you need to get lost. But if you lose yourself you need to find your way back.”

    These words of wisdom are spoken by Cretan musical legend George Xylouris, to his son Nick, as they practice together in a cramped apartment while on tour in northern Europe during a scene in the Greek/Australian documentary A Family Affair.


    The words are, no doubt, one of countless lessons that have formed part of the young man’s lifelong apprenticeship as a member Greece’s most renowned musical clan. Indeed, the wild, largely improvised traditional music of Crete of which they are exponents, is itself like a great rambling exploration of the wilderness – a journey that is never quite the same – but always finally returns to the village having learned something.

    This key fragment of fatherly advice also speaks to a searing question that the film asks – what does it mean to carry traditions into the future in a time of often troubling change?
