Joining DOC

What does a membership mean for you?

When you become a DOC member, you join a nationwide group of documentary professionals who share the same challenges and goals. Like you, they are driven to make the best documentaries, tell real people’s stories, and share the same obstacles in making it all happen.

That’s why we make sure that DOC members have access to exclusive professional development opportunities and lively networking events that can make a real difference in their careers.

A DOC membership reduces your professional costs. Our members access preferred rates on production insurance, save money on a variety of production services and are entitled to reduced rates on festival passes.
Members are automatically connected coast to coast through DOC's internal discussion board. And our e-newsletters and alerts keep DOC members in the loop on deadlines, policy changes and funding opportunities.

As a member, you are entitled to a free subscription to Point of View Magazine, the leading publication on the art and business of documentary in Canada.

There is real value in being a member of DOC, and with six different membership categories, including  Pro,  Start-Up,  Pro, Student, and Organizational memberships, there is something to fit every doc maker's needs.

DOC is the champion of Canadian independent documentarians. When you become a DOC member, you directly support essential advocacy work and sustain our ability to speak up for documentary makers on issues that matter.
