Documentary Organization of Canada

The Documentary Organization of Canada (DOC) is the collective voice of independent documentary creators across Canada and the premier organization for Canadian documentary advocacy. We analyze policy, conduct insightful research, and speak up at all orders of government to help our distinctly Canadian genre flourish. The creation of documentary work blends passion, art, observation, humour, and criticism. Our country has a rich history of documentary filmmaking, a history that we at DOC honour and celebrate to ensure its permanent place in our country’s cultural conscience. The Documentary Organization of Canada helps Canadian documentary creators get their work produced and seen. At local levels we offer top-notch professional development and networking opportunities through our workshops, masterclasses, and mentorship programs. We also continually work to build a suite of services and benefits that lower the professional expenses of our members.
