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.
Our 13th Annual Festival will include 50 outstanding documentary films, filmmaker Q&As and our Annual Gala Music Feature and Live Concert at the historic Empire Theatre in downtown Belleville.
Belleville Downtown DocFest is all about celebrating film, music, art and culture – it’s all about our resilient community too. We’re presenting a hybrid festival again this year and look forward to welcome you all back for DocFest 2024.
