Document is the only dedicated international human rights documentary film festival in Scotland. Held annually in October, we’re a grassroots initiative that aims to use film as an advocacy tool to raise the profile and promote debate of human rights & social issues across the globe.
Document has built its reputation by screening films which critically engage with the world we live in at the start of the 21st century; stories at once personal and universal in significance, by emerging and established filmmakers from every country and culture.
The festival provides a unique platform that attracts Scottish, UK and international documentary filmmakers and promotes local and international discussion, cultural exchange and education. We screen a large and diverse selection of human rights films that are rarely shown in the UK to offer a broader understanding of issues often ignored by the mainstream media.
