Founded in 2004, Dogwoof has released award-winning independent films from around the world such as Food, Inc., Burma VJ, The Age of Stupid, Restrepo, Bobby Fischer Against the World, Dreams of a Life, The House I Live In and Chasing Ice. Proud to be different from the average film distributor, we work intimately with filmmakers every step of the way through the release process across various platforms - knowing who we are and what we are good at means we love what we do, and are thrilled to be growing from strength to strength.
Dogwoof acquires all rights for exploitation across all platforms, with a special focus on backing its theatrical releases with award-winning major press, marketing, social media and outreach campaigns.
In 2011, Dogwoof expanded its operations into international sales; helping filmmakers promote and sell their film rights globally through its network of fellow international distributors and broadcasters, in addition to a guaranteed UK distribution deal. Films we’ve represented include Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present and How Much Does Your Buildng Weigh Mr. Foster and have signed deals for Sarah Gavron’s latest film The Village at the End of the World for 2013. This year we opened an office in America and will continue to engage on a global level.
Dogwoof is constantly working on building on the success of the last eight years, utilising new technologies and partnering with like-minded innovative companies. Dogwoof’s aim is to evolve with the changing film market and provide consumers with not only the films they want but also the platforms they want to view them on. We have our own streaming service Dogwoof TV and our Pop-Up cinema strand empowers local communities to host their own film screenings.
Other examples of successful partnerships extend beyond platforms to our social enterprise and outreach schemes, recent successful and continued partnerships including with The Co-operative, Global Zero, and 10:10.
Our main focus is documentaries that, in some way, inspire creativity, thought and change. Be they about communities, individuals, the environment or social issues, Dogwoof’s commitment to UK audiences is to offer the very best in world and homegrown documentaries.
