Document Film Festival 2019

Document Human Rights Film Festival runs from 24 – 27 October 2019 at the CCA Glasgow.

Document Festival is Scotland’s international human rights documentary film festival, established in 2003. It provides a unique platform that attracts Scottish, British and international documentary filmmakers and promotes local and international discussion, cultural exchange and education. By screening the best of recent and historical human rights documentaries, Document is a crucial space for the visibility and consideration of documentary film as an art form and social practice. Recognised at home and abroad, we work with many local, national and international organisations and are members of the Human Rights Film Network.

Over the last 15 years, Document has screened over 600 films, promoting an expansive understanding of human rights to include subjects such as immigration & asylum, women’s rights, war and conflict, self-determination, racism, LGBT rights, miscarriages of justice, eviction, poverty, social exclusion, workers/unemployed rights, mental health & social care, young and older people, human trafficking, indigenous cultures, environmental concerns, global policies and their local consequences, Roma gypsies and travellers, HIV/AIDS, drug trafficking and addiction and disability issues.

CCA is a fully accessible venue and full information can be found on their website.

Tickets to all events are either free or priced on a Pay What You Can basis from £0 to £8 (in £2 increments).

In order to make Document more accessible to those on a low income, [there is] a sliding scale ticket price for events. You can choose what you pay based on your circumstances – you won’t be asked for any proof / ID, [they] just ask that you are honest!

For pre-booking online, tickets are available from £2 – £8, with free tickets available during the festival dates from [the] box office. If you would like to book a free ticket in advance, or make a group booking of free tickets, please feel free to get in touch via Again, no proof is required.
