DokuFest, International Documentary and Short Film Festival, is the largest festival of its kind in Kosovo and the region. It takes place annually in Prizren. It was founded in 2002 by a group of cultural enthusiasts with the aim of reinitiating neglected cinema culture in Prizren and in Kosovo. Each summer the festival fills Prizren cinemas and other open-air screening venues with a selection of 160 documentary and short films from around the world. DokuFest Film Festival’s mission is to recognize and celebrate the art and craft of non-fiction cinema as well as short forms, including animation and films for children and youth. DokuFest also presents photo exhibitions, concerts, master classes, panels and a pitching session for Balkan filmmakers.
