The DocsOnline Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organization with its main office in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The organization is controlled by an independent management board and employs 10 staff members. The Utrecht office acts as the hub for a network of professional contacts worldwide. Our mission is to support professional documentary makers financially by exposing their work on a wide international scale to a paying audience. The DocsOnline Foundation further aims to encourage the use of documentaries as a valuable resource of information and promote an unrestricted exchange of views and opinions. Despite successes of films like Bowling for Col, Super Size Me or the March of the Penguins, most documentaries are still of limited commercial value. So, if we want to preserve the diversity of the documentary genre and its unquestionable value for society, we need to develop business opportunities beyond theater and television. To this end, the DocsOnline foundation organizes a documentary-on-demand website that is designed to increase public interest worldwide and provide the documentary tradition a lasting presents on the internet, thereby promoting the genre and fostering sales.
