The end of nature: Doc’s Kingdom 2016, September 3 - 8
Registrations for Doc’s Kingdom will open in early July. In addition to the events-only registration (for €25, giving access to all screenings and discussions), packages including meals and accomodation will be available.

Crossing borders: Doc’s Kingdom @Play-Doc 2016
During Play-Doc 2016, Doc’s Kingdom invites a dozen participants to watch and debate films together, during an all-day reunion with screenings followed by informal discussions in the presence of the filmmakers and other guests. The gathering takes off with a blind screening of a short work by Robert Kramer, after whose film Doc’s Kingdom (1987) the seminar is named.

The full programme of the films shown in the 2015 edition of Doc's Kingdom can be seen here, in a poster that was given to participants at the end of the seminar.

Auxiliary texts
The booklet - which contains different materials related to the programme and is distributed to participants - can be downloaded here. This year, the auxiliary texts organize excerpts around topics (like fiction / reality, testimony or visible / invisible) that are common to several films.

Cancelled attendance
Filmmaker Eyal Sivan will not be attending the seminar, for unexpected reasons. His film Route 181 - Fragments of a Journey in Israel-Palestine was shown this morning, in the second day of Doc's Kingdom.

Welcome to Doc's Kingdom
Participants who have registred in the seminar can access here all necessary information concerning: travel to Arcos de Valdevez, accommodation, place and schedule of screenings. (Attention: there was a change in the bus schedule!)

raum: online artist residencies
Doc’s Kingdom was in residence at raum platform, presenting “an imaginary and incomplete map” to the sound archive of the seminar’s colective discussions. Ana Eliseu and Nuno Lisboa propose an audio-drawing where we can listen to a multilingual conversation between filmmakers who participated in some of the eleven editions of Doc’s Kingdom.

Visions on 2013
Ten of the 2013 Doc's Kingdom fellows wrote texts or made short films about the latest edition of the seminar. The 16mm machine breaks down during the screening of Les Soviets plus l'�lectricit�, we talk to Joaquim Pinto on Skype, we make the boat trip to the Pico Island. To read and watch.
