DOCTalks Presents Film Series

DOCTalks Presents is a documentary film series being organized by DOCTalks Festival & Symposium Inc. and two non-profit community television stations in the Maritimes – CHCO in St. Andrew’s, NB and CIMC in Arichat, NS. Both television stations are CRTC licensed and collectively reach an estimated 800,000+ households in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and across Canada via UHF antenna, basic cable tier, satellite television, and Internet service providers.

DOCTalks Presents offers a unique knowledge mobilization/dissemination opportunity for researchers to present their research findings through documentary film, and for documentary producers to further distribute their documentary films beyond film festivals and community screenings.


DOCTalks is pleased to present two evening documentary film screenings & talks with a call to action, four presentations that delve into storytelling from a community engagement and social impact perspective, and two discussions about funding and disseminating knowledge-based documentary media. The 2024 event will be a hybrid (in-person & Zoom) with free admission and will be held in Fredericton, New Brunswick at the University of New Brunswick and St. Thomas University from June 18th to Thursday June 20th.

DOCTalks Land Acknowledgment

DOCTalks would like to acknowledge that the land we reside on, known as Turtle Island (North America), is also on the traditional unceeded territory of the Walatakewiyik (Maliseet) Peoples. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace & Friendship” which the Walatakewiyik (Maliseet),  Mi’kmaq (Mi’kmaw), and Peskotomuhkati (Passamaquoddy) People’s signed with the British Crown in the 1700s. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq / Mi’kmaw, Walatakewiyik and Peskotomuhkati title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
