Who are we

The Documentary of the Month acts as the extension of DocsBarcelona International Documentary Film Festival along the year and across the territory.

With the aim of bringing the documentary cinema closer to people, every month we release a high-quality documentary film about different subjects and origins, in over 70 venues of Spain, Chile and Colombia.

Nowadays, we still work in order to sum up other small, medium and large new cities to the project.

The documentaries are shown in its original version subtitled in Catalan (for the audience of Catalunya, Comunitat Valenciana, and Illes Balears) and subtitled in Spanish for the rest of Spain, Chile and Colombia.

Documentaries selection is decided by Parallel 40.


  • Bring the documentary genre closer to people, wherever they are: large capitals, medium cities or little villages
  • Increase the number of theatres that want to screen quality documentary cinema.
  • Open the documentary to new audiences, creating a documentary consumption habit thanks to a regular offer beyond the punctual events such as festivals.

The Documentary of the Month is an initiative by DocsBarcelona, born as a CinemaNet Europe’s project, in 2004.
Since 2007, the development in Spain is led exclusively by Parallel 40.
