Finding Film Archives


This site provides documentary film information and resources to both viewers and filmmakers. Documentary Films .Net is 100% volunteer driven and is lucky to have a devoted base of filmmakers, reviewers, IT people and students to keep the dream alive. The content here is created by people with a passion for documentary films.  In that vein, we’ve tried to keep the site as open as possible by allowing readers to add documentary films, festivals, events and resources to relevant sections of the site.  In so doing, we hope to provide a valuable resource to those with an interest in documentary films while simultaneously helping independent documentary filmmakers and festival coordinators promote their films and events.
