21st edition of Dokufest opens up in Prizren

The international documentary and short film festival, Dokufest, started its 21st edition with the screening of “Fire of Love” by the American director Sara Dosa. Over 250 documentary and short films from all over the world will be screened through the week in Prizren, Kosovo. Aside from screenings, visitors will be able to attend activities such as workshops, masterclasses, and discussions.


Each year this largest film festival in Kosovo fills cinemas and improvised screening venues around the historic centre of Prizren with a selection of more than 200 hand-picked films from around the world. Founded with the aim of revitalising cinema and cultural life in Prizren, Dokufest has grown to be the most important documentary and short film festival in South-East Europe and since 2019 has been a BAFTA-qualifying festival for short films. The festival is co-funded by the European Union.


This year the festival theme is “How to survive?”, and the topic will be covered from angles such as climate change, physical survival, and the war in Ukraine.
