DokuFest is the largest film festival in Kosovo. Hailed as one of the most important film festivals in Southeast Europe and voted twice as Top 25 Coolest Film Festivals by Filmmakers Magazine, it fills the cinemas and improvised screening venues around historic center of Prizren with a selection of more than 200 hand-picked films from around the world.

Founded in 2002, with the aim of revitalizing cinema and the cultural life in Prizren, DokuFest grew to become the largest cultural event in the country and one of the top documentary and short film festivals in Europe. Since 2019 DokuFest is on the list of qualifying festivals for BAFTA, British Academy Film Awards Short Film award and in 2022 DokuFest was invited by European Film Academy to join 28 other film festivals in nominating a short film for the prestigious European Film Awards.
