The website for documentary & film festival enthusiasts. Subscribe to our posts about which docs to watch and film festivals to visit.
Film festival fans have many festivals to choose from in the coming weeks. Sundance is currently happening in Park City, Utah, Doc Point started earlier this week in Helsinki, Göteborg International Film Festival started today in Göteborg, Sweden and major film festival Berlinale starts the 7th of February in Berlin, Germany. It is easier said than done to jet set between all these film festivals in various locations around the world, unless you are loaded with money and have your private jet of course. But whatever your budget, you might end up having the chance to see some of the docs at these festivals in your local cinema later this year since awarded documentaries at the festivals tend to travel quite a bit. Last year´s documentary winners at Sundance is a good example of this, but the awarded documentaries traveled between film festivals collecting awards along the way.
