May 21, 2013

Do you believe in the work we do? Then show your support!

When you support DOC, you ensure that exciting and insightful documentaries reach audiences in Canada and around the world.

DOC works hard to make it easier for filmmakers to produce documentaries and for audiences to view them. The organization plays a vital role in sustaining a dynamic and independent Canadian documentary community.

And, as a membership-driven organization, DOC depends on the community’s support.



Purchasing a yearly membership helps us make an impact in the industry through advocacy, research, educational initiatives, and professional development. 43% of our yearly budget is derived from membership revenues and represents 50% of our self-generated revenue. When you pay your membership, 55% of that amount is invested into professional development activities.

DOC is a charitable organization, which means that when you donate to DOC, you receive a tax-deductible receipt. Your contribution goes to our advocacy efforts. And we need your support in order to fight for essential documentary funding, to advocate for fair copyright laws, and build a better environment for the creation and distribution of Canadian documentaries.
