DokuFest today, announced its full list of the films to be screened within its 8 competitions sections. In total, 109 selected films will be vying for the awards of the festival. Culled from a record number of submissions, the competition sections of this year’s DokuFest are full of films that show us that there is no other art form capable of moving us to tears, bringing us joy, taking us to places of horror, and making us stand and want to change the world. From emerging filmmakers to the masters of the craft and from first-time filmmakers to the returning ones we are delighted to present their work in an outstanding selection of films for this 21st edition of DokuFest.

“DokuFest is thrilled to be returning if full swing with yet another eclectic programme of films that is sure to amaze, move, question, and even shock the audience,” says Veton Nurkollari, Artistic Director of DokuFest. “To be able to present works of such high quality, year after year, to our ever-growing audience, is our ultimate goal and we are extremely delighted about it.”

“Feeling very happy about what we have prepared and what we will share with our audience and the lovers of short film form. Presenting a kind of special and fresh works that deal with this year's theme of the festival and stories unseen until now is what excites me most”, says Samir Karahoda, Short Film programmer of DokuFest.

In the coming days, DokuFest will continue with the programme announcements, including the selection for its highly popular View From the World section, as well as a host of other specially curated programs and music acts that will perform at the festival.
