A Brief Guide to the 10th ZagrebDox Programme Sections


The tenth anniversary edition of ZagrebDox takes place from 23 February to 2 March at Zagreb’s Cineplexx Kaptol Centre theatre. A rich festival line-up once again this year presents over 150 documentary stories from all four corners of the world.

In addition to the international and regional competition, including numerous films from Mostra, Sundance, Hot Docs, IDFA, unusual stories will be presented in our popular official programmes: Controversial Dox, State of Affairs, Happy Dox, Masters of Dox, Musical Globe, Teen Dox and Biography Dox.

Like in the previous years, the side programme includes many retrospectives. For instance, the anniversary section named My Best Dox will present the finest documentaries screened at ZagrebDox to the choice of local film critics and documentarians, and the ZagrebDox Pro Retrospective comprises successful documentaries launched within this festival section intended for filmmakers. The tenth ZagrebDox will also host a retrospective of the Wajda school (Poland), an author’s night of the Croatian director Damir Čučić and few other retrospectives that will be announced soon.

Also, ZagrebDox again organises a rich educational programme for film professionals, ZagrebDox Pro, whose aim is to stimulate collaboration in southeast Europe and enable encounters and recognition on the global, European, regional and local documentary filmmaking scene.
