Bertha DocHouse is proud to co-launch DocXchange, a global network of dedicated documentary cinema exhibitors raising the profile of documentaries around the world. Together with founding members Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema in Toronto and La Compagna in Florence, we’re building a growing network, recently being joined by the cinema at The Maysles documentary Center NYC. The collective offers support and collaboration for documentary enthusiasts to create venues – from converted shopfronts to 500-seat deco cinemas – and inspire filmmakers and the public to ‘turn doc’.
Find us at IDFA this weekend!
