6th Echoes of Ji.hlava IDFF in Brussels

At the beginning of March 2018, Ji.hlava IDFF will come to Brussels for the sixth time to present the Echoes of the 21st Ji.hlava IDFF, a representative showcase of documentary films screened at the past year’s festival including a selection of winning films.

» OPENING CEREMONY | March 8, 2018 | European Parliament
» ECHOES | March 5 – 11, 2018 | Cinema RITCS, Cinema Galeries, Le Cercle des Voyageurs, European Parliament

"The Programme of the Echoes of Ji.hlava IDFF offers a focused insight into the latest trends of contemporary non-fiction cinema. We have carefully selected 10 out of the 331 titles presented during the 21st Ji.hlava IDFF for our showcase as we believe that they very aptly illustrate the variety and impact of documentary cinema. These titles represent distinctive figures from among the up-and-coming filmmaking generation who often pose very similar questions in Turkey, Poland, Lebanon, Czech Republic and Syria, being at the same time able to provide unique and brave answers.

Documentary makers are today the ones who, more than anyone else, venture into the uncomfortable zones of the real and mental landscapes. And it is thanks to their films that we are able to pause for a while and observe with them."

Marek Hovorka, festival director
