BKK DOC

Bangkok International Documentary Awards and Festival

About

BKK DOC was founded by Stephane Lambert, producer, a long time resident of Bangkok, and co-founder and organizer of "Asian Side of the Doc Bangkok 2016" the first ever documentary film market in Thailand.
Stephane established  BKK DOC to promote documentaries and its talents in and around South East Asia, starting with Thailand.

BKK DOC aims at bringing documentaries from all over the world to Thailand, and South East Asian documentaries to the attention of professionals from other parts of the world.

Stephane Lambert, BKK DOC founder and festival director explains:
"All submitted films will be screened by a selection committee welcoming actors, directors, producers, distributors and entertainment professionals from different fields (TV, Cinemas, Platforms, Festivals) coming from all over the world."
