There is absolutely something for everyone in the festival. DocuTime brings documentaries to the community to offer diverse perspectives and meaningful life stories that educate and entertain audiences.  

The event originated in Los Angeles as an International Documentary Association (IDA) sponsored event. One of the founders of IDA, Paula Lee Haller, relocated to Wilmington. It was her dream to expand IDA events to other venues. After successfully launching the inaugural DocuFest-Wilmington in 2003, the festival is now celebrating its fourteenth year. Ms. Haller says, “These exciting films are memoirs, confessions, and reconciliations, reflecting all the ways we tell stories through radio, film, and music.”  We are very proud to be part of the vibrant film community in Wilmington and appreciate your support.
