What is Doc Lounge?

Doc Lounge is a concept that grasps the trends of the time and takes them up to discussion for those who are hungry for documentaries. Doc Lounge shows international acclaimed documentary films and introduces speakers, live bands, DJs, performance artists, exhibitions or whatever may suit the evening's theme, and often the filmmaker participates in the discussion - over Skype or in person.

The events are mainly held in English as the film subtitles and interviews with directors are in English.
