HOLDSTOCK FUND FOR DOCUMENTARY ENGAGEMENT
With the generous support of Roger Holdstock, the Holdstock Fund for Documentary Engagement has been initiated to help DOXA bring filmmakers and special guests from across Canada and around the globe to the festival. The fund will help DOXA engage its audience, not only through the presentation of ground-breaking documentaries, but also through the provision of stimulating discussions and interactions following screenings.
The 2015 DOXA Documentary Film Festival saw more than 10,300 people in attendance across 87 screenings and events. We held 46 panels, Q&As, and Masterclasses with 84 filmmakers and special guests in attendance to engage in conversation with more than 4,000 audience members.
"In a culture that views movies largely as a form of escapism, documentary has sometimes had a tough time, but we seem to be entering into a period where audiences are more receptive to films that document the world we live in. We are recognizing that movies can engage audiences in the events of the world, in all their complexity. I have found that the level of engagement increases greatly when filmmakers and artists are present at screenings of their work. Audience members can learn about the challenges of the production, the motivations in making the films, and interact with the real people behind the film. I initiated the Holdstock Fund for Documentary Engagement to ensure that the experience of seeing a film with its creator(s), occurs more often. The intent of the fund is to facilitate the presence of more filmmakers and artists at DOXA screenings. I urge you to contribute and help us all to be more engaged."
