Indonesian Documentary Film Center

In-Docs believes that documentary films are powerful tools to create meaningful dialogues, and to motivate people to get involved in creating a more caring, tolerant and sustainable world. However, the infrastructure for documentary filmmaking and viewing in Indonesia and throughout Southeast Asia is almost non-existent.

Filmmakers are struggling to create the films that they are passionate about, while the majority of the audience do not have access to watch creative and meaningful documentaries about things that are important to their lives.

In-Docs creates breakthrough programs that improves the capacity of Indonesian filmmakers, improves access for Indonesian audience to watch documentaries, and connects documentary films to strategic partners that help the films achieve strong impact in the society.
