Event Details

Open City Documentary Festival creates an open space in London to nurture and champion the art of non-fiction cinema. Based at the UCL Centre for Public Anthropology, we deliver training programmes, an annual documentary festival, the bi-annual Non-Fiction journal and events throughout the year that aim to challenge and expand the idea of documentary in all its forms.

The festival takes place in venues across London between 8th – 14th September 2021 and online 13th – 23th September 2021, and consists of international contemporary and retrospective non-fiction film, audio and cross media, as well as filmmaker Q&As, panels, and workshops.

We take public safety seriously and will be closely following government guidelines regarding COVID-19. Should there be a change in guidance, we will adapt the festival accordingly.
