Breakthrough 2022 (5)


Giving Tuesday is almost here! We’re pleased to announce DOC Institute’s second annual #GivingTuesday campaign on Tuesday, November 30. We invite you to support our programming costs by making a tax-deductible contribution to the DOC Ontario chapter. 

We at DOC Institute, the programming arm of DOC Ontario, have been grateful for your support over the past few extra-challenging years. We continue to be inspired by your dedication to creating non-fiction work amidst global upheaval and production challenges. DOC thrives when our members thrive, and we remain committed to DOC’s mandate.

Breakthrough 2022 (6)

With your support, we continue to offer a programming slate for DOC Ontario as well as members across the county.  Our core initiatives include the Breakthrough Program, which provides industry support for early-career producers as they prepare for the market; Meet the Funder, offering space to learn about the latest programming priorities from funders and broadcasters; Savvy Producer, a workshop series in communities outside of the GTA that provide information about documentary producing; and our Master Classes, which showcase the fine craft of documentary filmmakers. We are preparing a new slate of programming for 2022 which we’ll be announcing in the new year. But we need your help.

We kindly ask that you forward this fundraiser to friends, family, and colleagues who love documentaries! Please select the “Ontario Chapter” from the dropdown options in order to support DOC Institute. Any amount is appreciated, and we will provide charitable receipts for all donations. If you have any questions, please contact
