‘Furthering Democratic Society through the use of Arts and Culture’ is a program of DokuFest that aims to respond to the challenges of contemporary society, such as, erosion of democratic institutions and lack of dialogue and inclusion, by merging arts and culture with wider relevant social issues.

One of the key elements of this program is provision of grants to support local talent of young storytellers, directors, producers for production and distribution of local stories to international markets, thus promoting local stories seen from the perspective of young and creative artists.

These grants are intended to provide alternative funding for filmmaking in Kosovo, for filmmakers who can develop and deliver the project within a set time-frame. Beneficiaries of these grants may be individuals who are ready to engage with young producers, through registered film production companies.


Individuals born after 31 December 1991 (citizens of the Republic of Kosovo)


Individuals will be eligible to apply for funding for a period of maximum 12 months including delivery of the final cut of the film. The maximum budget requested for funding from this call for one grant should not exceed EUR 10,000.
