Widen your film audience
Doc Screenings Documentary Film Festival highlights and celebrates independent documentary films.
The festival's mission is to support the creations of filmmakers and screenwriters, to highlight the best of them, to bring their films and screenplays to audiences and market professionals, and to highlight their work to buyers and content distributors in order to reach the widest possible audience.
We reach out to audiences and professionals from more than 150 countries.
So you get a really multinational, expressive, warmest, sincere, and close audience and distributing opportunities at the festival.
TOP 7 REASONS TO SUBMIT YOUR FILM OR SCREENPLAY:
We hold the festival live in popular venues (cinemas, conference halls, parks, etc.) to get closer to the audience.
Since we receive submissions from more than 150 countries, we reach a loyal audience from those countries. So we broadcast the selected films Worldwide on a special channel during the event dates if we have permission from the filmmaker.
During the event, each film receives the audience 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.
WIDE RANGE OF AUDIENCE AND PROFESSIONAL JURY AWARDS
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.
The Audience Awards are granted to films and screenplays with the highest audience votes in the screening rooms
The Fan Award is based on voting on social media.
Filmmakers receive official certificates and laurels, and the winners receive award signs and unique trophies for the festival Winner: the local gift inspired by the award-winning movie.
INTERACTION WITH THE AUDIENCE
An author can introduce his/her film or screenplay both: personally and online. If he/she can attend the event we give the time to communicate with the audience to introduce the film or screenplay 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.
THE CITY OF LIVE SCREENINGS
We hold the festival live in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. Why Tbilisi?
Tbilisi is 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. It’s in Tbilisi your film gets a really multinational, expressive, warmest, sincere, and close audience.
SALES AND DISTRIBUTION OPPORTUNITIES
The festival is a part of an international project MoviExpa (Los Angeles, CA), distributing independent films Worldwide to the audience, cinemas, channels, and online services. So the distributing team of the festival is analyzing films for a possible strategy for distribution and sales. If the filmmaker has an interest in this, the team will provide a plan after the festival.
SOCIAL MEDIA UNIQUE PROMOTION TOOL
We provide the opportunity to promote your film on social media.
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.
Besides, we promote your film as a part of the event program on the festival and project social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter).
