The 11th edition of the Dokudoc festival - a celebration of the documentary genre based in Maribor - is upon us. This year we present you with an astonishing bouquet of film premieres and a selection of educational classes. In addition to the Docudoc Luksuz documentary film workshop with Boris Petković, we will also hold a Workshop on writing about a documentary film with dr. Melita Zajc, as well as a Masterclass on poetry in documentary film with Czech director, script editor, and lecturer Jan Gogola. After ten years, we will go on a rafting adventure again. This time, we will talk about copyright in the field of the documentary film with guests attorney Špela Grčar and the head of professional services at AIPA k.o. Peter Kep. For the second year - in cooperation with the Directors Guild of Slovenia - we are organizing the documentary laboratory Dokumentarnica, where new ideas for documentary films are being developed under the mentorship of Petra Seliškar, Matjaž Ivanišin and Rok Biček. The locally-international band Heartbeat will perform a concert, and the performance of Hupa Brajdič will increase your heart rate by exploring the mysterious and miraculous, giving the festival atmosphere a magical touch. We have already started the pre-festival events at the Lent festival with Ukrainian films, and we continued with the Travelling Dokudoc to Slovenian cities Jesenice, Kranjska Gora, Ljubljana, Trbovlje, and Brežice. At the beginning of September, we also premiered the dance-documentary titled Aerowaves at 25 at the Maribor High School of Design in cooperation with Platform - Festival of Contemporary Dance Maribor. This year the jury, which will award one Slovenian film the title of Dokudoc Selected, consists of journalist and camerawoman Helle Hansen, publicist dr. Melita Zajc and film producer Miha Černec.

See you in Maribor from 15 to 18 September 2022 at the Maribor Puppet Theatre!
