Doc Coimbra is an international film festival that showcases the best in documentary films from political and social perspectives. Our festival is based in the historical city of Coimbra, Portugal, and showcase films from Portuguese speaking countries and international films.

We have a wide variety of films, from those that focus on immigration, political, environment, to those that highlight the stories of those who have been forgotten by history. We are committed to providing a space for meaningful conversations, and our films reflect our commitment to creating a safe and inclusive space for all.

We are dedicated to creating an inclusive and inspiring environment for filmmakers to share stories and perspectives from around the world. We invite you to join us at our next festival and be part of a movement to share stories that matter.
