DOCU/WORLD: From Documentary Blockbusters to Family Dramas

01 March 2019

Meet our international feature competition DOCU/WORLD. These are ten films which we selected from around a thousand submissions from across the world.

 

“This year, our DOCU/WORLD competition features Georgia, Finland, Denmark, Poland, Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, the UK, France, Germany, Congo, Russia, the USA. The films vary from emotional family and personal dramas to documentary blockbusters about elephant poaching in Congo,” says the programme director Victoria Leshchenko. “Some of the competition participants have become favorites at prestigious festivals, others are only starting their paths. And all this variety of senses, views and practices will be available to our Festival’s audience really soon.”
