A Documentary Festival Like No Other. 

Celebrating its 16th anniversary, the Oscar-qualifying Doc Edge Festival is back showcasing 80+ films over 38 glorious days. This year Doc Edge runs in theatres and online nationwide from 3 June – 11 July. 

Connecting film lovers with the very best documentaries from NZ and around the globe, the festival continues to offer a must-watch programme of world-class cinema. 
This year’s fusion festival kicks off at SkyCity Theatre with 18 feature films and three Doc Edge Originals between Thursday 3 - Monday 7 June (Queen's Birthday). 

There are a further 14 films to catch at The Civic the following weekend, between Thursday 10 and Sunday 13 June.

Take note – every film screens only once in theatres, so don’t wait around to see what other people think – make sure to book early.

There’s a bonus for theatre audiences who will get to enjoy live Q&As with filmmakers, entertainment including virtual and augmented reality exhibitions, and live performances from the festival village at each venue.
