DokuFest is an International Documentary and Short Film Festival held annually in the city of Prizren, Kosovo. With a selection of 200 carefully chosen films from around the world, the festival brings film producers, artists and a vibrant public to discuss topics ranging from economy, history and social change. This year (8-16th of August) , DokuFest is focused on the topic of migration. A phenomena that has been an inseparable part of the socio-economic and cultural identity of communities living in Kosovo. Still misunderstood, the festival seeks to address migration from a variety of angles and paint a clear picture on the relationship of Kosovars with migration.
Apart from critically acclaimed documentaries and short movies, a highlight of the festival Enri Canaj’s collection of photos from Syrian refugee camps in Greece. More importantly, the festival will host a number of events such as group discussions and photo galleries in order to better grasp the wide range of impact migration has.
