Why Pay?

Basically DocsOnline facilitates the direct transfer of payment between documentary-makers and their audience. Each second you’re watching one of our films 50% of our income is paid directly to the author or copyright holder. The other 50% is used to organize and facilitate our website. Any further profits are invested in the production of new independent documentaries. So, by watching any of our films you are in direct support of the filmmakers whose films you’ve been watching.
