In August 2016 we visited our partner Dokufest in Kosovo and held a press conference during the festival to announce the launch of Solar Cinema Kosovo, next year.
Dokufest is the largest film festival in Kosovo. Each year the festival is being held at the historic city center of Prizren with a program of more than 200 films from around the world. Documentary photo exhibitions, debates, master classes and lively music events are also part of the 9 days festival. The festival has a strong focus on human rights documentaries and a big ‘green’ selection of films. Apart from the festival the organization organizes film and education projects all year round. DokuFest uses culture, education and activism in their fight for sound cultural policies and an alternative education system in Kosovo.
