How do you #DocSociety is a listening tour around the UK. As the BFI’s delegate partner for the UK’s documentary funds, we are interested in how and why you document society. Together, we will remap how we capture, craft, shape and share the stories that matter most now. And, we’ll share the latest on how to apply for and access the BFI Doc Society funds.

In a handful of immersive regional events exploring the new national BFI Doc Society fund and current landscape for non-fiction film, we hear from the filmmakers and decision makers serving the docs community.
