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.
