DOXA Documentary Film Festival

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Western Canada’s largest documentary Film Festival returns for its 19th season with 82 features and shorts from Canada and the world. The festival starts off with Baljit Sangra's new film Because We Are Girls, the story of a conservative family of Punjabi ancestry in Williams Lake, B. C. coming to terms with sexual abuse.

      Over 11 days see films on such topics as Indigenous justice, how social media has infiltrated every aspect of our lives,  the craft of beekeeping, and that lingering question, who let the dogs out?

      The DOXA Documentary Film Festival runs at various venues from Thursday (May 2) to May 12. See the full program schedule for all 2019's DOXA Documentary Film Festival showtimes.

      DOXA 2019 review: Buddy

      A tribute to the sheer genius of service dogs, and dogs in general, the film introduces us to a number of canines living, working, and being very good boys and girls in Amsterdam, illuminating how each adapts to the needs of its human partner.
