This year’s edition of the Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival, that occurs from the 24th to the 29th October in Jihlava, features Portuguese works.
“The Jihlava IDFF is the largest festival of creative documentary films in Central and Eastern Europe. It draws attention to documentaries notable for their innovative visual style and a deeper social reflection and confrontation.
Every year, the festival programme selects winners in the international competition (Opus Bonum), the most remarkable Central and Eastern European documentaries (Between the Seas), the best Czech documentaries (Czech Joy), the best experimental documentaries (Fascinations), the best short docs (Short Joy), the most remarkable documentary debuts (First Lights), and the best Czech experimental documentary films (Fascinations: Exprmntl.cz). A different perspective, both in terms of the cinematographic approach and thinking about the world is reflected in retrospective sections called Translucent Beings.”
