First look at the 2017 Doc Edge Festival


The 2017 festival brings the latest batch of the world’s best documentaries to New Zealand audiences, and the first nine films that will feature in the festival have been announced.

There’s everything from civil war brutality in Last Men in Aleppo (pictured), the fight to retain land in the face of commercial development in The Opposition, to the daily use of faith and spiritual practice in Sacred, and Jakob Bailey’s quest to inspire others in The Common Touch.

Doc Edge heads to Wellington from 10 – 21 May at Roxy Cinema, and then Auckland 24 May – 5 June at Q Theatre.
