Open City Documentary Festival

Open City Documentary Festival is now in its ninth year – bringing together filmmakers, industry professionals and film enthusiasts from across the UK and around the world to celebrate the art of documentary filmmaking.

As a not-for-profit organisation, Open City Docs relies largely on our sponsors and supporters to continue to deliver London’s only dedicated documentary festival.

If you would like to support the festival or our developing programme of training, please consider donating. We are part of UCL which has charitable status and all gifts can be gift aided. You can make your donation online here or contact Chloe Trayner for more information about our individual giving scheme.

If you are a brand or organisation who would like to get involved with the festival, Open City Documentary Festival provides the opportunity to engage with an active and diverse community of forward-thinking individuals. Please contact Chloe Trayner to discuss sponsorship opportunities.


Open City Docs would like to thank our supporters for their continued generosity.
