01 How Did Docunight Start?

In 2014, A group of friends in San Francisco wanted to rent a very small theatre and watch an Iranian documentary there. They put it on Facebook for others to join, and more than a hundred people signed up. Then people from other cities asked to watch those documentaries the same way, and it expanded to 20+ cities across North America.

02 Is Docunight A Company?

No. Docunight operated as a grass-root initiative without legal status. Later on, when the Kiarostami Foundation was registered in California as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Docunight became a project under the Kiarostami Foundation.
