share info
Beldocs International Documentary Festival opens its doors today until May 18th with a 7-day program of documentary films from all over the world and as every year many professionals from the documentary film industry will attend this important documentary festival.

In the ninth year of its existence, the Beldocs festival has some novelties. Firstly, the location is expanded to several halls. After the opening, which will traditionally be held in ‘Sava center’, the festival continues in the Youth Center of Belgrade, the Culture center hall in Belgrade, Yugoslavian Cinema, the Fountain cinema, and the first time in Budva (Montenegro) in a renovated Cadmus Cineplex cinema, where Beldocs pushes the boundaries of its work this year.

Films are divided into several categories, two of them competitive; the International Competition Program and for the first time this year, the Serbian Competition Program. In the national selection, in addition to the Grand Prix for Best Film, there will also be two professional awards - for Best Editing and Best Cinematography in a documentary film.

The selector of the International program, as well as a tribute of the program to the famous documentarian Robert Flaherty is Greg De Cuir, a movie theoretic and author, while the film director Darko Lungulov is in charge of the domestic selection.

Generation ΄68 by Nenad Puhovski

The International program is full of documentary ‘treats’. Cinephiles will really enjoy the documentaries that provoke and talk about the effects of the past on the present society.

Two special programs this year are Biographic documentaries and Bulgarian documentary movies.

A special homage of the Beldocs program is dedicated to the famous documentarian Robert Flaherty, whereby the largest retrospective of his work will be held and the first integral retrospective on a 35mm strip in Europe, therefore the program will be held in the Yugoslavian cinema. On that occasion, for the first time, a digitally restored movie ‘Moana’ will be shown, as well as other works of this unique filmmaker.

Beldocs will host the Industry program intended for movie professionals in this field. On this occasion, the president of the European Documentary Network Paul Pauwels from Copenhagen, will discuss with the participants of the program, authors and producers, in two separate sessions – how to present their projects to the board of committee in Europe – and about the possibilities of European co-productions for Serbian producers of documentaries.

Here is the list with the Balkan films in each section:
