Last year in Bialystok we hosted a special screening of films from Kosovo along with Dokufest’s programmer Samir Karahoda, which this year resulted in our visit to one of the youngest countries in the world. Our colleague Marcin Luczaj was invited to the jury of the short films competition. Together with Kosovar actress Adriana Matoshi (her last film “The Return” was awarded at Sundance Festival) and Albanian director Sabir Kanaqi they will decide upon the award for the best film of 12 national titles.
Another Polish accent of the Festival are two competition films. “The Art of Disappearing” by Bartosz Konopka, now presented in Polish cinemas, will compete for the best documentary film prize. Animated “Ziegenrot” by Tomasz Popakul is one of the favourites in the short film competition.
The Festival takes place in the picturesque town of Prizren and will last until August 25.
