Membership FAQ

Membership FAQ

DOXA presents films that have not been seen by Consumer Protection BC. Under BC law, anyone wishing to see these unclassified films must be a member of The Documentary Media Society and at least 18 years of age, unless otherwise stated.

When you purchase your membership, you are entitled to view screenings, provided you have your membership and your ticket. 

You also become a voting member of The Documentary Media Society and will be eligible to vote at our next Annual General Meeting. Contact info@doxafestival.ca if you have questions.

Watch our 2016 Festival Trailer to learn more about why you need to have your DOXA membership card during the festival:
