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.

    Facebook Marketing for Documentary Distribution - A report on Over the Limit

    OVER THE LIMIT by Marta Prus was one of three documentaries chosen by Moving Docs in 2018 to be distributed across Europe in partnership with Alphapanda and Moving Docs partners Arte, Autlook in Austria, Cinedoc in Greece, Docs Barcelona in Spain, Makedox in N. Macedonia and Dokudom in Bosnia & Herzegovina. The goal of the campaign was to release OVER THE LIMIT across Europe by pooling resources of all the partners and creating a cost-effective campaign with a limited budget, reaching the right target groups.

    Results showed that cinema and VOD income increased almost 50% for some of the partners, bringing in young female audiences ( 18-24 years old). The campaign was also supported by the Polish Film Institute and Polish producer Telemark.
