DocsOnline Has a Purpose:
To make documentary filmmaking profitable for filmmakers. Why? Documentary filmmaking offers a perspective of the world that is unique and different from all other forms of media. Documentaries take their time to reveal details, like important facts, knowledge, experience and ideas. They also add a personalized view of the subject, which is an approach that often rebels against the institutional world or heralds the individual, the exceptional and the unique.
In a world easily-influenced by the power of the masses, it is important to preserve the attentive and personalized approach of the documentary. Most of today’s documentary films are either funded or financed, either directly or indirectly, by governments and institutions. This makes it difficult for a documentary to be truly independent, as one would prefer not to bite the hand that feeds it. To this end, DocsOnline operates a documentary-on-demand website designed to promote the genre and provide filmmakers with an independent source of income. All revenue is shared equally with the filmmakers.
