DOXA News

At DOXA, we value filmmaker participation - panel discussions, audience Q & As, workshops, masterclasses, and other less formal ways of engaging and learning from the people behind the cameras. That’s why we need your help in bringing filmmakers from across Canada, the US and around the world to our festival. Please donate your air miles today and help us reach our goal of 75,000 miles by March 20th 2019.

Big congrats to #DOXA2018 films Bing Liu Minding the Gap, Talal Derki's Of Fathers and Sons and Marshall Curry's Night at the Garden on your #Oscar2019 nominations! Thank you for sharing your beautiful, critical work with us this past year!

Seasons greetings from team DOXA! 2018 has been a year of immense change and growth for our small but tenacious team. Early in the year, DOXA  adopted a horizontal management style that employs active collaboration and collective decision-making. Autonomy, a shared sense of purpose, and a deep respect for democracy are hallmarks of how DOXA has always operated.

Program Highlights

In 1917, nearly two-thousand immigrant miners from Bisbee, Arizona went on strike for better wages and safer working conditions. 

“The result is a singularly American riff on The Act of Killing, a fascinating and dream-like mosaic that’s less driven by residual anger than by cockeyed concern, less interested in exhuming the past than in revealing its value to the present.” - INDIEWIRE

Metamorphosis confronts beauty and loss with powerful visual imagery. The stories of scientists, artists, and activists fighting the global environmental crisis are woven through with stunning imagery to deliver a powerful message of transformation.

Bing Liu focuses his camera on his tight-knit group of skateboarding friends in this deeply personal study of young adulthood, offering insight on the construction of masculinity, and its relationship to cycles of violence.
