Throughout the year, numerous documentaries are released in cinemas, but these often go unnoticed. These films deal with a wide range of subjects that are as close to reality as possible. Discover our selection of documentaries currently showing in cinemas, and those to come.

It's one of the least successful genres in cinemas, but also the one that contains the most nuggets. Documentary is a genre in a class of its own, always close to reality and sometimes attempting to push the boundaries of simple reporting by creating a true work of cinema. Some filmmakers specialize in this genre, while others alternate between fiction and documentary. In fact, some of the world's greatest directors, known for their fiction, have gone on to produce prodigious documentaries, such as Martin Scorsese, Werner Herzog and Agnès Varda.

There are lots of good reasons to go and see documentaries at the cinema. First of all, it's a great way to learn more about subjects that interest you. Documentaries can give you new perspectives on historical events, fascinating personalities or complex subjects. Documentaries are a broad genre and can take many different forms: portraiture, archival illustration, live footage, and more.

They can also make you think about important issues of our time, and help you realize the impact of our actions on the world around us. Finally, watching documentaries in the cinema is a unique, immersive experience that allows you to immerse yourself in a subject in a deeper way than watching a documentary on TV or a computer screen.

Discover below our selection of documentaries currently showing in cinemas and coming soon.
