In 2013, Doclisboa became the seventh member of Doc Alliance project – a partnership between six other documentary European festivals:
• CPH:DOX Copenhagen (Denmark)
• DOK Leipzig (Germany)
• FID Marseille (France)
• Jihlava IDFF (Czech Republic)
• Planete Doc Film Festival (Poland)
• Visions du Réel Nyon (Switzerland)
The goal of this alliance is to support, on a regular basis, documentary cinema, giving directors and producers alternative ways of distribution, either by its online portal (www.DAFilms.com) and by the festivals-mebers’ approach to the audience. As a member of Doc Alliance, Doclisboa will participate actively on its main projects:
Doc Alliance Selection: Every year, a film is nominated by each festival to run on the competition to the Doc Alliance award, given by a Jury composed of seven members, equally nominated by each one of the festivals. The awarding ceremony takes place every year in May, at Cannes Film Festival. All the seven Festivals programme a selection of these films in the Doc Alliance Section.
DAFilms.com: VOD documentary online distribution platform, for which the members contribute with a group of films every year, as well as with titles for temporary theme-based programs.
