First Lights

First Lights, a competition section that rises over the entire competition programme, focuses on the first great works of beginning documentary filmmakers. The selected films offer a different view allowing us to answer important questions related to the history of documentary film and its changing topics and styles. It also provides an overview of previously unknown filmmakers and offers the chance to compare films within new contexts. With First Lights, the Jihlava festival has decided to focus on the works of emerging filmmakers, convinced that they will become a strong voice in the struggle for the freedom and meaning of documentary film.
