Celebrating documentaries like never before.Cinema existed for a reason, especially documentary filmmakers make to express their story or the story they got motivated with.
Though documentary films have played a very important role in educating the youth about various aspects of society and also giving them an insider view of rare cultures. But still especially in South Asia documentary films do not get the right amount of exposure. With Arthouse Docs, we want to change it, we want documentaries to have a long life, and wide exposure. We want documentaries to reach the audience they well deserve. We want more and more colleges and universities to include documentary films to be part of their curriculum.
Join us. Let's build the movement together.
