It is the third edition, it takes place in Skopje, it goes on until June 22nd, it is a festival with its own, original profile and a special communication strategy – subscribe to its free newsletter, from where the following text is taken:

“This Friday the Old Bazaar in Skopje smelled differently. Apart from the smell of barbecue, baklava and other delicious pastry, one could feel the strong odor of onion. Kurshumli an opened its archway and welcomed the audience at the third edition of the Creative Documentary Film Festival “MakeDox”.

It was only the first of the many nights to come that are celebrating the documentary film under the starry sky among impressive and historically significant stone walls. Starting from yesterday, Skopje will smell like onion. Because the onion stands for MakeDox. It is a structure without center but with an objective. And the objective is the new onion: the new life justifies the existence of the onion.”

“Under” this very inviting text the festival includes a high class programme, divided into categories like “Multilayered Onion” (main programme), “Spring Onion” (newcomers), “Balkan Onion”, “Kids on planet Onion”, “Sliced Onion” (short films) and a special focus on the work of Serbian director Zelimir Zilnik. To exemplify: In the main programme you will find “The Interrupters” by Steve James, “The Cell Phone” by Nedzat Begovic, “The Ambassador” by Mads Brugger, “Nostalgia for the Light” by Patricio Guzman and “Argentinian Lesson” (photo) by Wojciek Staron.
