Welcome to the Oscar-qualifying Doc Edge Film Festival 2020. Life Unscripted. Online Nationwide in New Zealand from Friday 12 June until Sunday 5 July.

In consideration of the Covid-19 pandemic and New Zealand’s robust efforts to keep everyone healthy, inspired and motivated — we are proud to introduce the first ever entirely online film festival and free schools programme exclusive to New Zealand audiences and communities across the country.

We want to offer as much of a true film festival experience as possible online with scheduled screenings to watch with friends and family and Q&A sessions with filmmakers. Browse our full line-up of 83 of the world’s best documentary feature films and shorts here.
