DOKUFEST XVII ANNOUNCES COMPETITIONS!

July 5th, 2018

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Prizren, 06 July 2018 – DokuFest announced today the full slate of films in competitions for its 17th edition, running from August 3 – 11 in the city of Prizren, Kosovo.

The Festival will showcase 100 films in its six competition sections representing 40 countries – including ten world premieres, four international premieres and a number of European and regional premieres. All other films screening at the festival will have their Kosovo premieres.

An outstanding body of work of non-fiction cinema, as well as a great array of short fictions and experimental cinema is what characterizes the film competition. This year’s selection features a number of returning filmmakers showing their works for the second or third time at the festival while at the same time, a growing number of young and upcoming filmmakers are also appearing across all the competition sections.

In the coming days, the festival will continue to announce other, specially curated strands. These will include its highly popular View From the World strand and a specially curated strand on Reflection to coincide with the central theme of the festival.

“Bold, courageous and adventurous, that’s how I’d label many films and also filmmakers behind them” said Veton Nurkollari, Artistic Director of the festival.

“DokuFest continues to be committed in bringing the best of cinema to Prizren and to Kosovo and we are delighted to be able to once again present works of exceptional quality, both from emerging filmmakers as well as from the masters of the craft.”
