The Folkestone Documentary festival returns for three days in 2022 with an opening night party, twelve screenings, industry Q&As, masterclasses, guest programmers, and a community meal.
Taking place across the Quarterhouse and the Silver Screen Cinema, the festival celebrates documentary in all its forms, from art to social issues to just great stories, with community collaborations at the heart of programming.
You can see our screenings below. More events are being held at the Quarterhouse. For the full programme, please visit the Folkestone Documentary Festival website.
Tickets are available for individual events, or you can take advantage of the Documentary Festival Pass which gives you access to all festival events at a much-reduced price.
