Founded in 2003, with the aim of revitalizing culture cinema in Prizren, DokuFest grew and expanded into a leading film and music event in Southeast Europe and from 2020 is a BAFTA qualifying festival for short films. Each summer, DokuFest fills the cinemas and improvised screening venues around the historic city of Prizren with a selection of more than 200 hand-picked films from around the world, as well as attracting numerous international and regional music acts that perform at DokuNights — its music strand.

The festival anchors its array of films by choosing a unique theme each year which is highlighted in the debates, masterclasses, discussions, panels and workshops. All of this is made possible by the 150 volunteers that buzz around every corner of Prizren, welcoming guests, working at our shop center and cinema venues. Their dedication and love has made the festival what it is today!
