Doc Society


Doc Society (previously known as BRITDOC Foundation) is a non-profit foundation working globally with documentary film. Established in 2005, Doc Society is supported by Ford Foundation, BBC, Bertha Foundation as well as other European and US Foundations. It's our mission to befriend great filmmakers, support great films, broker new partnerships, build new business models, share knowledge and develop new audiences globally.

Involvement in film

We act as funders, connectors, brokers and executive producers. We can fund films at any stage and thrive on working with both emergent and established filmmakers. We offer production support as well as outreach support and mentorship. Doc Society also brings you the global Good Pitch events and the annual Impact Award, celebrating the films that made most social change.


We can only do what we do because of organisations and individuals who support our work.
Thank you everyone.
