After twelve consecutive editions as the main festival meeting point in the country, and one the most important in the region, Tirana International Film Festival (TIFF) has decided to create a Documentary Festival (DocuTIFF), which will be taking place in the capital of Albania on May 9-13, in the open air Amphitheatre of the University of Arts.

TIFF’s artistic director Agron Domi explains the necessity of this new festival: “The idea for this new festival was born after numerous applications sent during the 12th edition of TIFF, in 2014. There were about 5,400 films in all categories. It was impossible to show all these qualitative films at TIFF, and that is the reason why we thought to divide it and to create every year new competitions for each category, such as DocuTIFF, AnimaTIFF, ExpoTIFF, for documentary films, animated and experimental ones. We choose to begin with documentary films as a need to create favourable conditions in Albania and the wider region, for the development and cooperation of such productions”.
