Doc at Work

Doc at Work proposes meetings with filmmakers and other professionals from the cinema industry (producers, buyers, distribution companies, representatives of other festivals) to explore themes concerning documentary cinema, comparing points of view, production experiences and practices.

Doc at Work Campus

Starting from 2017, the Doc at Work Campus takes place in Florence during the Festival dei Popoli. The aim of the project – supported by the “Sensi Contemporanei for the Cinema” Program and by the Fondazione Sistema Toscana – is to enhance the work done in the best Italian film schools, presenting to the audience some of the most significant works among those made during the year, and to foster the entry of young filmmakers into the professional environment.

Doc Explorer

The galaxy of documentary is constantly expanding. Doc Explorer proposes to explore its boundaries, venturing into those border areas – and here lies the meaning of this section – in which the language of documentary blends productively with other forms of expression and the (virtual or non) spaces created by technological innovation.

Popoli for Kids and Teens

In collaboration with KinderDocs and Krakow Film Festival, Festival dei Popoli proposes a selection of documentaries for young and very young audiences of Florence. We invite you to discover the magic of the documentary and be inspired by enthralling stories.a
