Hosted by the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of China, GZDOC is organized by the People’s Government of Guangdong Province and the Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of Guangdong, and undertaken by Guangzhou Municipal Bureau of Culture, Radio, TV, Film, Press and Publication.
After 15 years’ development, GZDOC has grown into the only national documentary festival incorporating investment, financing and trade. It has helped numerous Chinese documentaries to go global and led to a lot of partnerships being forged at home and abroad.
