The Moving Docs project is supported by Creative Europe and Region Skåne, and led by the European Documentary Network. It will bring together seven innovative documentary festivals, cinema distributors, TV stations, and VOD distributors, with Doc Lounge, in order to select a number of European documentaries to promote with simultaneous events and marketing in Autumn 2015 and Spring 2016.
Moving Docs brings powerful documentary films to screens big and small, by combining event cinema with innovative online distribution. It is driven by a shared belief in the value of documentaries and the importance of a diverse film culture within Europe. With 20 screening partners across Europe and two mainstream media partners, Moving Docs enables a selection of the best European documentaries to cross borders and reach new audiences. These are films with an impact. They make you see the world differently.
Moving Docs will create a common marketing and distribution strategy to enable and facilitate the pan-European release of documentaries and one of its aims is to create innovative outreach strategies and provide opportunities for urban and rural European audiences to enjoy regular screenings of documentary films through a wide variety of media and platforms. You can read more about the project on its official website.
