CinéDOC Tbilisi – Good EUnews

Georgia is (still) not a member of the European Union and yet there is a cultural link that works as in this case, I copy-paste a message from the festival FB page:

”We are very proud to announce that CinéDOC-Tbilisi is the first Georgian film festival to be funded by the Creative Europe Program of the European Union! We are honored to be funded in the same group with such great film festivals like Dok Leipzig, Sarajevo Film Festival, Oberhausen, La Rochelle, Doc Lisboa, Jihlava Documentary Film Festival and 23 other festivals selected out of 108 eligible applicants!

The selection letter made us extremely happy: “This is a very valuable festival led by a professional team. The event has a strong representation year round and outside its home city.[…] The festival is a very good example of decentralisation of European festival life, bringing European cultural works to new audiences.””

The festival takes place October 21-25.
