Scientifically based speed date

In 2019, DOCVILLE revolved around the theme of love. Therefore, the festival organized a "scientifically based" speed date, together with Prof. Dr. Erick Janssen of the KU Leuven. Eleven matches came out of those dates, and for at least one pair of participants, that encounter was hugely successful. Meanwhile, in fact, there is already a DOCVILLE baby!

We are happy to repeat that success for this anniversary edition. Interested? Apply via the festival website and if a match is found for you, we would love to see you at the most romantic documentary festival!

This film is part of...


Documentaries on the big screen are now well established, but that was once different. Twenty years ago they were mainly associated with dry information transmission and not with "cinema"; with visual power or emotion. Unjustified, judged the team of Fonk vzw who sensed that a different approach was possible and in 2005, as a season opener, presented a series of strong cinema documentaries under the title "DOCVILLE". The public, the industry and the press were immediately won over. The time was ripe for a real documentary film festival.
