History of the Docmonde association
From Africadoc to Docmonde
An international association
The Docmonde association was formed in 2012 with the aim of helping to create an international network of independent directors and producers, and to structure the audiovisual sector, more particularly in countries where documentary representation of the world is weak or absent. It initiates new programs: Doc Caribbean Amazon and Doc Pacific in 2013-14 then Asiadoc in 2015.
The gradual transfer to Docmonde of the programs initiated by Ardèche Images was completed in 2017. The same year, the Docmonde association strengthened its governance by setting up an international Board of Directors. Today, the Association's Board of Directors is made up of 4 colleges: external figures, local partners, trainers and producers.
Based in the village of Lussas, in the Imaginaïre building, Docmonde is one of the founding members of the Lussas documentary village association, alongside Ardèche Images, the Tënk platform, the film-documentaire.fr portal and Lussass production and distribution companies. She has privileged links:
- with Ardèche Images, which offers visibility to films resulting from Docmonde training courses during the General Assembly on documentary film via the Docmonde selection.
- with the Tënk platform by broadcasting via its Docmonde range but also production support via its pre-purchases
