Our Values: 

DOXA works hard to cultivate an equitable, accessible and respectful environment both in our organizational day-to-day and in festival offerings. One of DOXA's founding principles is to engage with a diversity of curators, filmmakers, academics and activists to illuminate the intersections of social, economic and environmental injustice. We believe that documentary cinema holds power within moments of social momentum and change, and is a valuable tool in interrogating unjust systems. We also believe in anti-racist education, increased mental health services, income and housing security, harm reduction services, accessible rehabilitation, public arts and cultural programs, decriminalization, transformative justice, and other vital community-based systems. We believe that an investment in documentary film should be informed by a parallel investment in these tools for change.


Do you possess a passion for the arts and a knack for working with the public? If the answer is yes, and you thrive in a flexible and creative environment, we want to hear from you!
