DocuBay Stocks Up on Film Festival Titles


DocuBay has partnered with the International Film Festival Shimla (IFFS) to bring the documentaries featured in last year’s festival to the streaming service.

Select titles will be featured under their own category or “Bay” called IFFSBay and are now available for global streaming on the platform. DocuBay was also the official streaming partner of the IFFS, which took place in the town of Shimla in the Himalayan foothills.

Notable titles to be featured on DocuBay include Authenticity, about how Ayurvedic treatments might be the key to great health and lasting wellness; No Woman’s Land, about women in a Himalayan village defying the laws that keep them from inheriting property; Behind The Bars, about how learning homemaking skills like stitching and baking help to rehabilitate prisoners; and Dan the Himalayan Ibex, about a community of women determined to fight threats to the ibex and help keep them alive despite hunters, poachers and a declining habitat.

Akul Tripathi, CEO of DocuBay, stated: “Working with independent filmmakers and film festivals like the IFFS reinforces our commitment to providing a platform for storytellers to showcase their work worldwide. We’re very proud to highlight these features on DocuBay and look forward to further building relationships with independent filmmakers and other international film festivals to become a global voice for the factual film community.”
