DokuFest Prizren

The festival in Kosovo (starts August 17) has announced its impressive programme. The artistic director Veton Nurkollari welcomes the audience in this way:

“We are thrilled to present an expanded slate of competitions at DokuFest this year, with films that paint a picture of contemporary world in such a brave, provocative and honest way. Films about bees, ships, the cat name Baby, Black Sea pirates, Balkan matchmakers, punk girls in balaclavas or mass exodus are only part of eclectic selection of films in competitions and we are looking forward to share these and other films with our audience in August”.

In the international competition for long docs (10 films) you will find films like “Elena” (Petra Costa, Brazil), “The Last Station” (Christian Soto & Catalina Vergara, Chile), “Stories We Tell” (Sarah Polley,Canada, the opening film, Photo), and the new film by Polish Bartek Konopka and Piotr Rosolowski “The Art of Disappearing”, whereas another Polish film “My House Without Me” (Magdalena Szymków) is to be found in the short doc section. There are also films under the caption “human rights”, including “Salma” (Kim Longinotto, UK), and a Balkan Docs Competition with “Dragan Wende” (Lena Müller and Dragan von Petrovic, Germany/Serbia), “One Step Ahead” (Dimitris Athiridis, Greece) and “The Last Black Sea Pirates” (Stoyanov, Bulgaria)… not to forget an hommage to Chris Marker and a retrospective of films by Jay Rosenblatt.
