CBC Short Docs

About the Show

CBC SHORT DOCS is a series of original short documentaries produced by emerging Canadian independent documentary filmmakers for release across CBC’s digital platforms, offering emerging filmmakers an entrypoint to working with CBC Docs and a platform to reach Canadian and international audiences. These documentaries are a mainstay of CBC’s digital programming and the go-to destination for audiences looking for engaging, character-driven, short (under 30 minutes) documentary content.

In the two years since its launch, CBC SHORT DOCS has released more than 60 short documentaries and worked with dozens of emerging independent documentary filmmakers on all aspects of production, from initial concept through to digital rollout. Diversity of filmmaker voices is a priority - more than 60% of the docs released feature characters from visible minorities, more than 30% are produced by Indigenous filmmakers, and more than 50% are produced and directed by women.
