Events of the month
DOX BOX Global Day
from 12th to 18th March
DOX BOX is a Syrian documentary film festival held every year in the second week of March in four cities: Damascus, Homs, Aleppo and Tartus. This year the fifth edition was due to take place. However, due to dramatic events in the country, its organisers decided on a different approach, with festivals around the world screening important works of Syrian documentary cinematography on the same day in a show of support and solidarity for the people of the country. DAFilms.com will take part and offer Syrian documentaris for free stream.
