    ZAGREB: ZagrebDox International Documentary Film Festival will celebrate its 20th edition with a handpicked selection and an executive director. A total of 102 films will screen from 14 to 21 April 2024 at the Kaptol Boutique Cinema in Zagreb.

    Nineteen films were selected for the International Competition and 21 films for the Regional Competition. Among the non-competitive sections are: Festival Hits, State of Affairs, Musical Globe, Happy Dox, Biography Dox and Masters of Dox.

    Starting this year, the festival founded by Nenad Puhovski has an executive director, Hrvoje Pukšec, while Nenad Puhovski will continue to be the artistic director.

    The participatory documentary platform ZagrebDoXXL will present five panels on various topics such as the abuse of deepfake technology and finding a just political solution for Palestine.

    This year, the ZagrebDox Pro educational and development workshop will focus on documentary series by helping authors of selected projects in their development, but also in bringing closer the possibility of presenting them to television, producers, financiers and distributors.
