- October 4-31
Welcome back to Doctober, the Belcourt’s month-long celebration of documentary film. This year, we offer 15 highly anticipated films from promising new directors and masters of documentary cinema. These are stories of artists and activists, eccentrics and champions, ordinary people and infamous events. When you grab your pen to circle your must-see films, please note that Doctober films have limited runs (sometimes only one or two showtimes). We’ll add speakers and discussions throughout the month, so keep your eye on our weekly e-newsletters and our Facebook page and Twitter feed.
