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).
