We believe that documentary is an incredibly powerful art form, whose impact multiplies when it's viewed together—a shared experience of shock, awe and laughter with friends and strangers has the ability to inspire people to change the world for the better. 

Doc Lounge's aim is to attract a wide and varied audience to documentary film, and in turn create new, innovative ways of bringing the best documentaries to a broader audience.


Doc Lounge Events

Doc Lounge's core activity are the events, including regular, public events at Doc Lounges' across the Nordic region, as well as our corporate events; tailor made for companies, municipalities, universities and conferences.

Doc Lounge Projects

In addition to the key activities surrounding the Doc Lounge Network—our films, clubs and events—Doc Lounge are working across several independent development projects in connected areas in order to constantly innovate the screening format and offer new audience experiences.
