Moving Docs Expands Online with ‘Home Cinema’ VOD Channel

With its recently launched video-on-demand channel, Moving Docs Home Cinema now gives viewers around the world the opportunity to get instant access to a selection of critically acclaimed documentaries that are hard to find otherwise.

Moving Docs is the very first pan-European distribution network for documentaries, powered by 20 screening partners across Europe, ARTE Europe, the Thessaloniki International Documentary Festival, and outreach strategists Film & Campaign. It is managed by the European Documentary Network and supported by Creative Europe. Combining event cinema with innovative online promotion, Moving Docs, in its fourth year running, enables a selection of the best European documentaries to cross borders and reach new audiences. Last year alone, 25 documentaries from Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the UK were screened in 18 European countries, with subtitles in 15 languages, reaching an audience of more than 5 million. The Moving Docs Home Cinema is now looking to expand the network’s reach through an own-branded video-on-demand offer.

These are films with an impact that make audiences see the world differently. Driven by a shared belief in the value of documentaries and the importance of a diverse film culture within Europe, Moving Docs Home Cinema offers documentaries from all corners of Europe and are available in as many as 11 different languages (English, French, German, Italian, Greek, Dutch, Swedish, Spanish, Norwegian, Macedonian and Slovenian).

Cecilie Bolvinkel, Moving Docs programme manager at the European Documentary Network said:  “Over the last few years, Moving Docs has already build up a strong track record in bringing down borders and supporting the joint release of high-profile documentaries across Europe.  We’re excited to be taking this one step further now by expanding our online channel. I’d invite all lovers of documentaries to take a look at the Moving Docs Home Cinema.”
