Meet the Team

Daang Dokyu is headed by a passionate team of filmmakers that aims to reach a broader audience for documentaries and offer the 'docu way' to take stock of how we are as a nation and where we are headed.

Take Part

Researchers of the Daang Dokyu Festival have already found 200 remarkable documentaries. We hope to discover more films from across the region and spread stories that inspire communities, resonate with individuals, provoke different conventions, and question existing taboos.


Help us trace the Filipino story. We are looking for volunteers to get involved and join us in sharing the local stories from across regions and spread inspiration and encouragement of the documentary community. Get in touch with us and find out more.
