Open City Docs Fest is a live festival devoted to exploring the world we live in through the vision of documentary film. Every event is a 'live' event at Open City Docs Fest with filmmaker Q&As, film and subject panel discussions, live scores, comedy, theatre, guided documentary walks, live music, food, workshops for industry and public. It is where the filmmakers meet their audience.
The Festival is one of several projects run by Open City Docs, founded by Michael Stewart. Based at UCL,Open City Docs is where the next generation of filmmaker is nurtured and celebrated, delivering film screenings and live events, training programmes and projects throughout the year including Open City Docs Fest, MyStreet and Open City Docs School. We also run screening events through the year called Open City Docs Specials.
