Bertha Dochouse

Bertha DocHouse is the UK’s very first dedicated documentary centre and is made possible by the Bertha Foundation .

The 56-seat Bertha DocHouse screen offers a vibrant programme of international cross-genre documentaries, as well as frequent post-screening filmmaker Q&As, panel discussions and events, 7 days a week. We aim to celebrate the depth and breadth of the documentary form with films from the UK release calendar as well as titles without distribution, festival favourites and a strong range of themed seasons and retrospective screenings..

Nurturing and educating new filmmaking talent is also at the heart of what we do, and so we offer aspiring doc makers the chance to meet and learn from some of the most respected names in the documentary world through masterclasses, courses and educational strands.

Our unique documentary screen, with an adjacent lounge for discussion and networking, and a videotheque archive of three viewing stations, is working to fill the gap of a much-needed hub for documentary in the UK.
