Communion took home another award, this time from Jihlava

"What was trending this year at one of the largest documentary film festivals in Europe? The Jihlava IDFF that is associated within the Doc Alliance (along with Docs Against Gravity from Warsaw, CPH: DOX from Copenhagen and DOK Leipzig) this year delved into political topics and films about socially excluded groups."

Accolades for CEE Docs at Jihlava’s 20th Anniversary

"The prizes at the closing ceremony spanned Europe, but the biggest prize of the 20th anniversary of the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival should go to the festival itself. Under the direction and forward-thinking quest of founder Marek Hovorka, the festival has been quietly shattering expectations, coalescing this year in a festival that not only looked back on its first 20 years, but used the occasion to look ahead to the next 20 years."

20th festival edition in Moravian Jihlava: a place pulsating with activities

"Who wants to be up to date with the current events in documentary filmmaking has to go to Jihlava. It is a pity that a documentary event of such a prestige does not take place in Austria and very unfortunately will not be happening any time soon."

Jihlava: Moravian Donkeys and Elephants

"The Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival offered a rehearsal of the presidential elections in the US, with the election topic also reflected in a few of the presented titles. The South Moravian city of Jihlava hosted the 20th edition of the event under the baton of Marek Hovorka. Its traditional motto is: “Thinking Through Film”."
