The DEC aspires to build a global network of dedicated documentary cinema exhibitors to raise the profile of documentary around the world. In doing so, we will offer support and collaboration for documentary enthusiasts to create venues - from converted shopfronts to 500-seat deco cinemas - to inspire filmmakers and the public to 'turn doc'!
