DOCTalks Festival & Symposium Inc. is a not-for-profit organization, provincially incorporated in New Brunswick, Canada. Since 2013, DOCTalks has fostered and facilitated the creation and mobilization of knowledge-based documentary media for social, cultural, educational and economic purposes.
To that end, DOCTalks seeks to promote cross-sector collaborations between - documentary filmmakers, academic researchers, charities, governments, foundations, broadcasters - to produce, fund and distribute knowledge-based documentary media projects. This includes showcasing projects that involve knowledge mobilization and the dissemination of applied research using various documentary media content.
Creating knowledge-based documentary media content involves multiple cross-sector partners collaborating with each other to produce, fund and mobilize feature & short documentary films, podcasts, immersive learning technologies (virtual & augmented reality, apps, games), interactive websites and social media activities. The underlying narratives of knowledge-based documentary media are – real stories, about real people, living in real communities, addressing real issues, and creating real change in society.
