DOXA’s annual fundraiser features a rollicking quiz night hosted by the Vancouver Quizmasters. Get ready to put your pop culture trivia skills to the test against the city’s biggest (baddest) film nerds, while enjoying food, drinks, and more than a few laughs.

We are now accepting submissions for the 17th Annual DOXA Documentary Film Festival, that will take place from May 3-13, 2018.  This call for submissions is for recently completed documentary films (short to feature length). 

Join us for an encore screening of ADA FOR MAYOR at The Cinematheque (1131 Howe St.) on Thursday September 21, 2017, 7:00 p.m.

Join us for a free screening of Marie Clements' music documentary, THE ROAD FORWARD as part of Vancouver Civic Theatres' Sunset Cinema series.

Every dollar donated in the month of June automatically enters DOXA for a chance to win $10,000!
