GlobeDocs Film Festival 2018

Tuesday, October 9 – Sunday, October 14, 2018

October 12–14 at Brattle Theatre

The GlobeDocs Film Festival is a five-day documentary film festival designed to engage, promote, and celebrate film and production talent. The festival, which takes place in select theaters across Boston, is specifically curated to include a lively, hosted post-film conversation with Boston Globe journalists to turn screenings into an opportunity for the community to come together and have an open dialogue.

With GlobeDocs, The Boston Globe furthers its reach as an organization dedicated to shedding light on the truth by presenting the work of filmmakers near and far who are also focused on telling important stories, large and small.

The fourth annual festival will take place from October 9 to October 14, 2018 in conjunction with HUBWeek.
