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.

    Now in your MOVING DOCS Home Cinema: Raving Iran

    Kirstin Innes finds hope and black comedy in Raving Iran, a story of two young DJs following the beat and defying the authorities.


    Midway through Raving Iran, our protagonists,  two young Iranian house DJs, Anoosh & Arash, are trying to get a CD of their latest album printed and distributed. They go through the official channels for permission and are turned away; Iran’s strict laws prohibit the distribution of any music that is not traditional, and various aspects of their packaging – Latin typeface, a picture of a man with his back exposed, any depiction at all of their female singer – are turned down. They try an endless succession of printers and then shopkeepers, and time and again they hear the question “is it political?”. No, they say, genuinely baffled each time. It’s just music.
