Today, DocHeads in association with Film London, Film Hub London and BFI Film Audience Network, is proud to announce the launch of cinema exhibition Doc Heads for short documentaries across the capital.
The cinema programme will launch on 16th March at Bertha DocHouse, Curzon Bloomsbury, and will play at selected sites across London in March & April.
Doc Heads believes that the shortform is the future, and this new programme premieres films from some of the most exciting filmmakers of the moment – Oscar-nominated, BAFTA winning, Staff-Picked. Innovative, boundary-pushing and cinematic: it’s an immersive experience designed for the big screen.
But this isn’t just about great films; this is also event cinema. Each screening is themed and offers the audience an opportunity to take part in intelligent discussion with filmmakers and other high-profile speakers around important stories.
The first programme of Doc Heads highlights the stories of the excluded or marginalized and takes us into new corners of the world, experiencing blindness through the eyes of a child; the world of journalists chasing car crashes in Cambodia; teenagers tempted by the far-right in Bradford; poetry in the Calais jungle and the life wisdom of a hot dog seller on the streets of London.
