The seventh edition of Docville will be held between 30 April and 7 May 2011. The festival presents a wide selection of recent releases and previews, a number of thematic series, the best new documentaries and Belgian arrested again with an international selection of unreleased films.

Docville organizes both a national and an international competition. Documentaries finished before 1 January 2010 can be submitted.

The best documentaries will become a part of the 2011 festival programme and will be awarded.


Docville keeps a finger on the pulse of the world of the international documentary film. More than 800 entries from all over the world were watched and discussed on Docville 2010.
