In-Docs is a non-profit organisation committed to fostering an open society through documentary films. Since 2002, In-Docs has conducted workshops in 13 cities in Indonesia; discovering raw talents and producing documentaries from unlikely places, with a quality that is widely recognised among the Indonesian film scene and abroad. In-Docs has also conducted documentary screenings in more than 30 cities in Indonesia. Ever since 2015, In-Docs has been focusing on building the documentary infrastructure in Indonesia. Through platforms and programmes, In-Docs connect Indonesian documentaries with the international industry as well as strategic partners—that can widen the reach and impact of the films.
Docmonde supports documentary filmmakers at every stage: writing, finding producers and broadcasting. Training programs and international co-production meetings have been set up in 6 regions of the world: Africa, Eurasia, South-East Asia, Amazon-Caribbean zone, Pacific zone, and the Indian Ocean. The political challenge is to encourage the emergence of authors’ perspectives on their companies and to professionalise directors and producers by structuring local production chains in a sustainable manner within a global network.
