Echoes of Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival

A representative showcase of documentary films screened at the past year’s festival including a selection of winning films will be held for the seventh time in Belgium. The films are dealing with various themes, the choice reflects rich programme sections of the IDFF Ji.hlava that features directors debuts, experimental and short films, feature-lenght Czech and Eastern-European films, docu-reality and more.

This year, the cooperation continues with the Brussels based Cinema RITCS (and school) and is joined by Ghent’s KASK Conservatorium as well as Cinéma Aventure in the centre of Brussels,  known for its diverse offer of contemporary independent cinema.
