The Melbourne Doc Fest each year curates world class features direct from some of the hottest most prestigious documentary film festivals in the world like Sheffield Doc Fest, Traverse City Film Festival Doc NYC, SXSW, Doc Edge and IDFA. But what matters to us most is documentaries that are well-made, compelling, thought provoking, passionate and relevant to Australian audiences.
The Melbourne Doc Fest is one of the world newest documentary film festivals and one of the most fun and interesting stop overs on the international documentary film festival circuit. It is the only festival in Australasia to provide feedback on submissions.
We want to highlight and promote all documentaries, but in particular:
Documentaries from Women in Film
Aboriginal and Indigenous documentaries
Good luck filmmakers!

For 6 years, we've been bringing in the finest films from around the world. The film festival became a 501(c)3 and launched in 2009 and now screens more then 70 films each year! Hollywood Director Joe Carnahan is our creative director. He has brought us such films as "The Grey" and "The A-Team" with Liam Neeson and now has Bad Boys 3 in pre-production. Most of our previous winners of Best Feature have obtained distribution. Last year's winner BEREAVE just signed a distribution deal and said, " I wish to take a moment to tell you that your hospitality and your wonderful festival helped our film stand out for distribution. Thank you for that and we'll be sending you more of our work in the future.” So join us!
We look forward to having you screen at our 6th year anniversary!
