DocsintheCity is an initiative to bring people together around documentaries. We focus on starting conversations. We invite directors, guest speakers and local guests for interviews and Q&A’s and we put a lot of effort in the afterparty with music that fits the atmosphere. To get our public involved in one-on-one conversations. Getting social back to life… away from the media.

It’s nice to see and hear personal stories brought to you from all over world. It’s great to be able to share them afterwards. That’s why it means a lot to me that we were able to do screenings of international documentaries in our own City Theater in Schijndel. I appreciated the reactions we’ve got after the first screenings.

For both films and books my preference goes out to non-fiction. Furthermore I like to share good books and films, to talk about it and share opinions and understanding. That’s what we wanted to try in a bigger setting. But it had to be our setting. The setting of Schijndel. From there, let’s see where it brings us.

Our website in English

English works in different ways for us. We are internationally orientated when it comes to the contact with documentary film makers. Importing their films usually comes with English subtitles. Having them as guest will lead to an interview and Q&A in English.

So having our website in English makes it accessible for international film makers. On the other side we prevent disappointment for visitors who are frightened off by the English on our website, for they would have problems with subtitles and the interview.
