DokuFest is pleased to announce first in a series of specially curated programmes for its 20th, jubilee edition, titled 20 FOR 20: REPLAY and comprised of, you guessed it already, 20 films that have screened at DokuFest in these past years. Not to say 20 best films but rather the films that somehow define the taste and curatorial practice of the programming team of DokuFest. A program that celebrates 20 years of the festival with 20 great films! We could do more but had to stop somewhere!

Among the titles to be screened are some of the past winners of the festival, such as Pietro Marcello’s La Bocca Del Lupo, Ognjen Glavonić’s Dubina Dva, Dea Gjinovci’s Sans le Kosovo and Dorian Jespers’s thrilling short Sun Dog.

As well as a number of gems, including Verena Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor’s highly innovative and groundbreaking Leviathan, Gary Tarn’s haunting Black Sun, Bill Morrison’s mesmerizing Dawson City: Frozen Times, The Ross Brothers’ cinematic boundary-blurrer Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets, Lendita Zeqiri’s single take short Balcony, Garrett Bradley’s stunning short film America or Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard’s fictious look at 24 hours in the life of rock icon Nick Cave in 20,000 Days on Earth. Plus some more great films too!

DokuFest runs from 6 to 14 of August in the city of Prizren in hybrid format with most of the films to be screened in cinemas with the audience. The complete program of the festival, including films in competition will be announced on July 9.
