Documentary films are booming!

Documentary films are experiencing a renaissance, shedding their once-elitist image to become a booming market that captivates audiences worldwide. The surge in demand for real-life stories has propelled the documentary feature market into the mainstream, with streaming platforms playing a pivotal role in broadening their appeal. These thrilling and emotionally charged narratives often rival the drama of fictional tales.


As anticipation builds, Stockholm gears up to host the 25th edition of Tempo Festival, promising documentary enthusiasts a cinematic treat. From 4th – 11th of March,, 62 screenings will unfold across 25 unique venues in Stockholm.
