documentary is a digital television station devoted to showing the best documentaries from Canada and around the world. With its special emphasis on feature length films, watching documentary is like having a cinema in your own living room, showing award winning films twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
documentary shows documentaries from legendary filmmakers such as D. A. Pennebaker (The War Room, Don't Look Back) and the Maysles brothers (Gray Gardens, Salesman). The documentary also shows the best films from the archives of its partners, The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (Dawn of the Eye) and The National Film Board (Cinema Verite).
