Walk The Doc is an International Documentary Festival initiated by Walkabout Asia to gather documentary filmmakers and content creators who recognize the importance and impact of our environment to our future world development. Focusing on Nature, Environment and Travel, We are looking for stories that document interesting events, amazing people and intriguing things that address the beauty and how we care or should care about our planet. Travel or tourism related stories that are committed to sustainable and green tourism will be given special consideration.

Through our Award Night, we offer an ideal setting for documentary filmmakers to premier new work and talent as well as developing lasting relationships among industry players. We have several awards up for grabs, to celebrate the very best of the submissions we receive, curated from our Official Selection.

From last year success, our 2nd edition of Walk The Doc 2023 will continue to be in Langkawi, Malaysia. Designated as a Unesco Global Geopark, Langkawi is the perfect place for filmmakers around the world to gather in which the winning documentaries will be awarded and shown.
