Belleville Downtown DocFest is a community oriented documentary film festival that seeks to promote awareness of cultural, economic and environmental consequences and to encourage civic participation resulting in positive change.

50 Films. Gala Music Doc & Live Music. Filmmaker Q&A’s. 10 Days from March 4-13, 2022

The 11th Annual Belleville Downtown DocFest is all about celebrating film, music, art and our resilient community.  

We’ll stream 50 outstanding documentaries, including the Gala Film and Music performance, and Q&As with renowned filmmakers.

You can choose to attend online only or to come out to the in-theatre Gala and then catch the DocFest films virtually as part of your own “at home” film fest.

Belleville Downtown DocFest’s 11th Annual, 2022 Gala Event

Join us for the 2022 Gala at Belleville’s historic Empire Theatre.

We’re planning a knock-out Gala evening, pairing a fabulous music doc with a rocking live music performance. The Gala film and recording of the live performance will be available for viewing for three days during the week of the festival.
