DOXA, one of Vancouver’s most groundbreaking film fests returns with 10 days of fully online programming as they celebrate their 20th anniversary this year.

The festival delivers nonstop streaming of some of the world’s most hot-button docs, with a packed program of artist talks, discussion sessions and exclusive features. Every DOXA doc will be available on-demand throughout the festival: an all-access pass lets you view everything the fest has to offer, but single screenings are available too.

Top picks include: Poly Styrene: I Am a Cliché, a film on one of history’s greatest Black woman punk rockers; The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution, featuring backroom footage from the resistance group’s heyday; and a special lineup of films about the war on drugs curated by Vancouver’s own Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users (VANDU).
