doxita is a traveling festival of documentary films that are under 40 minutes in length.  The program, comprised of approximately two hours of film, represents a wide variety of documentary – domestic and foreign, super-short and longer format, serious and funny.  It is designed to profile the great content and artistic vision that non-fiction short films provide, but that people don’t often get a chance to see.
