What is DocPoppies?

At DocPoppies we believe documentaries belong on the big screen. Our mission is to bring the most recent Flemish documentary films to arthouse cinemas across Flanders and Brussels. Each film is carefully picked out for its cinematic quality or its social or cultural value. 

For 2017-2018 we present five brand new Flemish films and, in collaboration with Moving Docs, two compelling European films.

Nearly all DocPoppies-screenings offer a little extra: the films are shown in the presence of the director or introduced by experts on the subject. 


DocPoppies showcases seven new documentary films each year in arthouse theatres across Flanders, boosting awareness for the films and their content.
