And that’s a wrap!

Thanks to everyone who helped make 2024 a success

As virtual festival now comes to an end, we would like to send out a huge round of applause to all of the incredible filmmakers whose films were shown throughout our festival, and especially to all of the filmmakers who came to Belleville for in-person Q&As last weekend. You really helped to make our in-person weekend really special. We would also like to say a HUGE thank you to our festival sponsors, venues, volunteers, and the whole DocFest committee. Without you, we wouldn’t have been able to make DocFest 2024 happen!We’re really excited to share this festival highlight video with you. Please take a moment to remember all of the amazing festival events we held this year, from the Gala, to the filmmaker panel, to live Q&As with filmmakers, and so much more!

We’d love to hear your festival feedback while it’s still fresh in your memory. Did you travel from another region to join us over our in-person weekend? Did you especially enjoy the Gala or have a particular favourite film? Is there something different you’d like to see us try in the future?
