DocsBarcelona +Medellin/ 2

In times where festivals for documentaries aim for bigger and bigger numbers of audiences, ranging from 50.000 to more than 200.000, it is refreshing to read that much smaller numbers can make the organisers happy like the ones who stood behind the pioneer work in Colombia. Read the press release received yesterday, and click below to read what we have written about the festival before:

“With over 16 years of experience, DocsBarcelona closed its first edition in Colombia, Docsbarcelona+Medellín, with absolute success. “The last applause” by German director German Kral was the cherry of a four-day festival that turned the city of Medellin into the centre of international documentary.

With a great response from the citizens of Medellín, (2.448 viewers attended the screenings with an average of 87 people per session) DocsBarcelona+Medellín points out to turn into a new meeting point for international documentary.

DocsBarcelona + Medellín , which took place between the 15th and the 20th of October, presented 15 films, most of them screened previously at DocsBarcelona (Spain), morning screenings for teenagers, as well as a program of industry activities including a Development and Documentary Executive Production workshop, 3 master classes and 3 rough cut screenings. The event counted with the support and presence of 6 international guests.”
