DokuFest has announced today the full slate of films in competition for its 19th edition, running for the first time in an online format from August 7 – 25, 2020 on a specially designated online platform, developed jointly by Festival Scope and Shift72.
In total 90 films, representing 51 countries will be vying for awards in 8 competition sections. Among them are 8 films that will be running for award in a newly established TRUTH competition, for films between documentary and investigative journalism. We are delighted that a number of films in competitions are either debut or second films of the filmmakers, making this year’s selection a place of discovery.
“Timely, important and innovative is how I’d label many of the films from this year’s competitions,” said Veton Nurkollari, Artistic Director of the festival. “Even in difficult times like these DokuFest continues its mission in bringing the best and the brightest in contemporary filmmaking to its audience in Kosovo and beyond”.
Also, we are extremely proud to be able to present a film in the International Competition for feature length documentaries of a Kosovo born filmmaker - the very first time in the festival’s 19 year history to have such a feat!
