The Doc Club concept is pretty simple.
Each month we screen a fantastic doc before chatting about it in a bar over a few drinks.
Sometimes we have guests and panel sessions. Sometimes we just have a few beers.
Online, we have original essays, interviews and assorted goodies.
Plus, there’s our fortnightly newsletter with updates, news, trailers and recommendations.
We’ll only show docs we absolutely love. They might be thought-provoking, hilarious, heartbreaking or utterly bonkers. But we promise they’ll be good.
We think docs are best digested in good company. That’s why we want to build a community of doc lovers, rather than just doc filmmakers.
Documentaries are often seen as stuffy, worthy or even boring. We want to help make docs just a little bit cooler and show more people how mind-blowing they can be.
Doc Club To Date
Since 2014 we have been showing amazing documentaries at independent venues across London. Click the arrows to see the story so far, from action men to Donkey Kong, via cloned dogs and Kung Fu.
In February 2014, Doc Club launched with a rare screening of the incredible Marwencol. Afterwards, we held a "Slow Q&A" with director Jeff Malmberg.
In May of 2014 we screened Errol Morris' classic tale of Mormon sex slavery and cloned dogs. Yes, thats' right.... Cloned dogs.
King of Kong
In July 2014 we screened one of our favourite docs of all time: King of Kong.Our audience loved this story of competitive video gaming.
But not as much as they loved the Donkey Kong tournament we hosted in the bar afterwards.
In June 2015, we screened the extraordinary Dear Zachary.
Afterwards, we held a 'Slow Q&A' with director Kurt Kuenne.
Montage of Heck
In July of 2015 we 'accidentally' screened the Kurt Cobain doc Montage of Heck. After technical difficulties scuppered our Plan A we roped Kurt in as our backup.
My Kid Could Paint That
In August 2015 we showed the classic My Kid Could Paint That. Can a four-year-old paint like Picasso? To find out we invited a panel of artists, curators and parents for our first live Q&A.
KUNG FU ELLIOT
In September 2015, we screened the bizarre and hilarious Kung Fu Elliot. Afterwards, we held a slow Q&A via video with directors Matthew and Jaret.
The brutal, compelling Cartel Land was nominated for a Best Documentary Oscar in early 2016. To mark the occasion we screened this tale of murderous Mexican drug cartels in February.
In May of 2016 we held a special Invictus Games screening of Murderball. After the film we held a Q&A with the ridiculously inspiring Stuart Robinson, captain of the UK Armed Forced Wheelchair Rugby team (and Invictus bronze medallist).
