DOKUFEST is a full experience. When the magic of our six cinemas across the city rest, DokuNights takes over. It’s our treat to our spirits and yours.
We open up with the fun and the edgy Pertti Kurkikan Nimipäivät, coming from Finland and performing on 17th of August, the opening night of DokuFest.
Nine nights at DokuNights cover a thoughtful selection, calling for variety in taste, alternatives in and attitudes and a beautiful post film chill out. Hence all this borderlessness, hence Bloody Foreigners – the real border breakers are back home, hence Por-no is back on stage, hence Bicalko is back in Prizren.
We break borders for a crazy Albanian Night with Erti, Mimin and Tatu and we totally dysfunctionalize them by bringing over Paris electro duo Thylacine, and Toton & Dusan Janevski, a neighborhood favorite. Gantz, Camelorg & Basscatz will bring us the tightest dubstep night and frontman of legendary The EX will punk the night with his electro ZEA project.
The closing night of DokuNights is about the sorrow and bliss of love, homeland, freedom, longing and poetry. Elina Duni Quartet will perform on 25th of August in Prizren for the closing event of DokuNights. But we won’t consider it truly closed unless we see you all rolling out for Andra Sylqe’s drum and bass performance.
