Open City Docs Fest is a live festival devoted to exploring the world we live in through the vision of documentary film. Open City Docs Fest happens annually for four days in June across multiple London venues. Every event is a 'live' event at Open City Docs Fest with filmmaker Q&As, film and subject panel discussions, live scores, comedy, theatre, guided documentary walks, live music, food, workshops for industry and public - this is where the filmmakers meet their audience.
The festival presents films about real life, and about the experience of real people many of whose voices are not often heard. We challenge, explore and expand ideas of what documentary can be and do, provoking debate and opening minds. Open City Docs Fest has selected films that explore the range of modern life from the challenges of urban living, to the thrills of science, the subversion of art and the restorative beauty of music.
