Empower your audience

Nothing is more frustrating than wanting to help and being powerless. ShareDoc enables the audience to overcome the post-documentary blues by taking immediate action and supporting the protagonists or a cause. We created ShareDoc to empower you to become a change-maker and amplify the social impact of documentaries. Following the screening of a documentary, you can now donate to a protagonist or a charity or take concrete actions such as signing a petition or organizing a protest to raise awareness of a cause.

It is not only about watching...

Your audience does not only want to dwell in awareness.... awareness cannot provide shelter to those millions of refugees nor change the fate of the 26 billion chickens trapped in the global factory industry. At best, awareness can be a beginning.... Awareness might lead your audience to take action via ShareDoc : the action that will make an impact to change the lives of your protagonists

Interview by Valerio Caruso, Cineuropa

Anne Marie Borsboom, the founder of ShareDoc, breaks down her tool designed to bridge the gap between documentary lovers and immediate action, enabling viewers to support protagonists
and drive social impact.

The Impact of sharing

Mar 14, 2023

Interview by Nick Cunningham, Business Doc Europe

Founder Anne Marie Borsboom explains to Business Doc Europe how her ShareDoc initiative is designed for doc-watchers “with a philanthropic mindset.” By scanning a QR code at the end of a screening audiences can donate directly to the protagonists.

They loved ShareDoc!

At CPH:DOX, we were impressed by the spirit and determination of Share Doc to further the efforts of filmmakers and their work, and provide concrete support for film characters and issues they fight for- or with. It is essential that civil society and film collaborate in their role of "change agents” in the society. ShareDoc is an excellent tool to advocate for social, cultural, political and legal change around documentary films.

Tereza Simikova Head of Industry CPH:DOX 2023

While we as documentary makers are not allowed to reimburse our characters, Share Doc has ensured that our Daughters of the Sun have received a wonderful contribution for their efforts. I also noticed that the film audience that attended the Q&As really enjoyed to be able to do something concrete for the Yazidi women after watching the film.

Reber Dosky, Filmmaker

Here is why we believe our platform can be a success and disrupt the film industry! Watching a heavy documentary is one thing, but leaving it helpless after watching does not make me happy. If I were satisfied and able to act, I would go to this type of film more often.' ShareDoc’s mission is critical. As a film festival, we aim to collaborate with the platform for several reasons. Mainly, the project has the potential to become a single platform continually working with impact and with specific human-rights documentaries, which are the core of our festival programming strategy.

Organizer Festival One World

The audience can be more willing to visit specific documentaries if they can be involved instead of being reduced to passivity. The more festivals engage with ShareDoc, the greater the possibility of a united industry that encourages dialogue between the audience, filmmakers, protagonists, and festival representatives. ShareDoc and film festivals could work together to encourage the rise of an engaged audience willing to go beyond the film experience and engage in broader social changes.

Ondřej Kamenický, Director One World

I believe ShareDoc can lead to more satisfied audiences at our film festival and significant changes for the protagonists. It would change our image from being an information-oriented and discussion-oriented festival to an action-oriented festival. It is innovative as there are no similar initiatives only focused on the documentary industry.

Eric van de Giessen, Former International Support Manager at Movies that Matter

For us as producers, the ShareDoc concept is fantastic. We often get the question: "How can we help this person in your film?" And here we actually have an answer, where the protagonists themselves can receive direct donations. The logistics are manageable, and most importantly: We always have a feeling that we are collaborating with an organisation that has its heart in the right place.

Maria Kristensen, Producer Final Cut for Real

As a documentry filmmaker I sometimes asked myself – does my job still have sense in this world, overloaded with video material and documentaries of any kind?
Are festivals, red carpets and prizes really my goal? No.

Anastasia Vinokurova, Filmmaker

The ShareDoc idea was for me an insight. Making documentaries to create a real social impact – that sounds good! ShareDoc makes it possible on very direct way.
Thanks to ShareDoc I found a new motivation to continue working on documentary film, looking for stories and protagonists, who are making this world better and need help on it.

Anastasia Vinokurova, Filmmaker

I wanted to say HUGE THANKS for your idea and platform! I think we did it well.

Ruslan Fedotow, Filmmaker Away

ShareDoc is a fantastic initiative and resource for documentary filmmakers, and we were honoured to have the ShareDoc team at our festival to meet with documentarians from the island of Ireland.
We hope to continue to develop our relationship in the coming years!

Roisín Geraghty / Head of Industry & Marketplace DOCS IRELAND

ShareDoc is a simple and great tool that can benefit many protagonists and also film teams to create impact in an efficient way.

Sini Hormio Filmmaker, Impact Producer, Impact trainer

“ShareDoc is an inspiring intiative, allowing audiences and stories to grow closer together in real life, a goal that many documentaries share.”

Esther van Messel Founder & CEO First Hand Films

Docs reflect the state of the world…and it is often not nice what we see. SHAREDOC is a unique tool set up to actually help the people whose life you witness ( and feel for…) in these movies…. you can make a difference. Great idea!
