Widen your film audience

Doc Screenings Documentary Film Festival is a film festival dedicated to documentary films.

 

The festival is part of an international project MoviExpa (Los Angeles, CA), distributing independent films Worldwide to the audience, cinemas, channels, and online services.

Once the festival is over, the team will provide a brief distribution plan to the filmmaker if they express interest in it.

 

This is a platform for filmmakers, film lovers, industry professionals, and media to connect with each other and showcase their talents and opportunities. 


 

We hold the festival live in popular venues (cinemas, conference halls, parks, etc.) to get closer to the audience. 

 

During the event, each film receives the audience feedback and evaluation by 6 criteria: script, directing, acting, camerawork, music, and impressiveness. Filmmakers receive detailed results personally after the event. Based on those results the best film receives the Audience Award.

 

Why Tbilisi, Georgia? 

 

Tbilisi is the capital of Georgia, one of the crossroads between Europe and Asia. So that Tbilisi is a very multicultural city. Georgia has an extremely generous visa-free policy that allows more than 95 nationalities to enter the country without a visa and stay for up to one year. That’s why Tbilisi has a large expat community from all over the World, including the United States, UK, Spain, Germany, Canada etc. 

 

It’s in Tbilisi your film gets a really multinational, expressive, warmest, sincere, and close audience.

 

A professional jury panel that includes award-winning filmmakers, producers, as well as representatives of distributors, buyers, and online streaming services, also reviews selected works and gives their awards. 

 

We receive submissions from more than 150 countries so we reach a loyal audience from those countries. That’s why if we have permission from the filmmaker, we broadcast the film on a special channel on our website during the festival days. In this way, we bring the film to an audience from all over the world.

 

The festival is part of an international project MoviExpa (Los Angeles, CA), distributing independent films Worldwide to the audience, cinemas, channels, and online services.

Once the festival is over, the team will provide a brief distribution plan to the filmmaker if they express interest in it.

 

Doc Screenings Documentary Film Festival is inviting you to submit your film. 

 

TOP 7 REASONS TO SUBMIT YOUR FILM:

 

Full attention to your film. Focused audience. We classify all the films into genre sections so the viewers could focus their attention and limited time on the films they engaged most. 

 

Audience feedback & evaluation. Test your movie. This is such a huge advantage to filmmakers. Viewers evaluate all the screened films in 6 main categories: story (script), directing, acting, camerawork, impressiveness, and music. So you test your film against an audience of viewers. 

 

Screenings in local venues that are nearest to the audience. Out-of-format Cinema network. We screen films at local venues such as cinemas, screening halls, conference halls, parks, etc to be as close as possible to the audience. We create the cinema network for out-of-format independent films to distribute them regularly with payments to the creators. 

 

Interaction with the audience. You can introduce your film both: personally and online. If you can attend the event we give you the time to communicate with the audience to introduce your film and to have a Q&A session. Besides, you can interact with the audience via online access or just send the introduction video. So you get the opportunity to popularize yourself, your film, your crew, and your cast. 

 

Awards and Certificates. Audience choice and the Professional Jury panel awards. Filmmakers receive official certificates and laurels, and the winners receive award signs and trophies (the festival winner).

 

Social media promotion tools. We provide the opportunity to promote your film on social media. First, we promote your film as a part of the event program on the festival and project social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). Second, our festival rewards the Fan award that’s determined by voting on social media. So you get the great opportunity to accumulate your fans and promote your film information. 


Market and Distribute your film. Our film festival collaborates with theatrical distributors, TV and cable channels, and online buyers. Your film receives the opportunity to be presented to them at the festival. We can also include your film in our Film Market and promote it among content buyers.
