About Ydoc

Ydoc is a not for profit organisation based in the Netherlands. We care about the future of documentary storytelling. That’s why we started to develop different services that assist in making documentary stories available to an international audience.

With a focus on the still and moving image, Ydoc is always looking to expand their shop and archive with stories worth telling. By putting all these projects and makers together, we want to track exciting developments within the field of documentary & visual storytelling and address our audience, via this site and through social media to support, buy and share these projects. We also developed publishing applications to promote visual and documentary storytelling.
