2020 has been a challenging year for filmmakers, but the hunger for great storytelling and exploration of the world through cinema has remained as strong as ever, and the need to tell those stories has been just as immense. In uncertain times, cinema brings cultural and social understanding, and no genre within cinema does this better than the documentary.
That’s why FilmDoo is proud to partner with Bangkok’s BKK DOC, an international documentary award festival, running December 17th – 20th.
Award-winning films will be screened from December 18th – 20th at the Goethe Institut, Bangkok. At the same time, the awarded films will be made available online on the FilmDoo platform.
For all you aspiring filmmakers out there, we are inviting you to submit your documentary to the 2020 edition of BKK DOC, and potentially get your work discovered by an audience of passionate documentary film lovers and an international jury of industry professionals. The submission period ends on 18th October 2020, so there’s still time left to enter!
