WE HAVE IMAGINED A FUN, SECURE, AND WELL ADAPTED TOOL TO THE ENVIRONMENT FOR DOCUMENTARY CINEMA.

Docfilmdepot is a platform that allows directors, producers and distributors of documentary films to manage their call for entries at several festivals. It allows you to create an account, to register one or more films whatever the genre to which they belong, to download the corresponding files, then to submit them to the festivals of your choice, partners of the platform.

Submission is made by sending an uploaded digital file. This shipment is payable by a simple online stamp system. For some festivals, submission can also be done by sending a dvd or blu-ray.

Docfilmdepot is also aimed at festivals and programmers who broadcast documentary films during their events. It is a complete and easy-to-use tool that allows you to manage the call for entries, the selection process by integrating the characteristics specific to each edition, and to facilitate the selection and the programming of the films via a dedicated space of streaming online.


WHO ARE WE?

Docfilmdepot is a project initiated by the association Ardèche Images based in Lussas in France. Founded in 1979, Ardèche Images is committed to the development, promotion and dissemination of creative documentary cinema.
The association organises each year the États généraux du film documentaire.


A COOPERATIVE APPROACH

The team of Docfilmdepot filmfestivals.com and its partners are anxious to defend the creative approach of documentary cinema. We wish to distinguish ourselves by our commitment to creative documentary, while respecting works and intellectual property law.

See you soon!
