Welcome to the 21st annual DOXA Documentary Film Festival! This year's festival is taking place both in theatres and online.

Between May 5-15, 2022, DOXA will offer an exceptional selection of films, filmmaker Q&As and Industry events. In-person screenings will take place at:

  • The Vancouver Playhouse (Opening film)
  • The Cinematheque
  • VIFF Centre

In-person Industry events and festival socials will be held at:

Films in the online program will be available to stream for the duration of the aforementioned festival dates, unless otherwise specified. Online films are geo-blocked to Canada and virtual tickets will be limited.



Tickets for theatrical and online screenings must be purchased separately, from either our In-person or Online Eventive sites. Please be doubly sure that you are purchasing the right ticket, before following through to payment!

Due to box office constraints, we are unfortunately unable to offer in-person festival passes for purchase; individual tickets, or packs of 5 theatrical tickets, are available.

You are still able to purchase a pass for all online screenings. Online passes are priced at $75 and grant you access to all films streaming on DOXA’s Eventive Virtual Festival platform during their allotted streaming dates.

Please be aware that DOXA requires all attendees to wear a mask at all times during in-theatre screenings and in-person Industry events, unless actively eating or drinking in your seats. Masks will be available on site. This is part of our commitment to keeping DOXA staff, volunteers, and all members of our community safe and healthy.
