DOCSBARCELONA - International Documentary Film Festival


DocsBarcelona is now 15 years old!

And to celebrate, we have prepared a schedule of activities that are sure to enthuse the festival’s loyal followers and capture new ones. Once again, this year’s event features the same time-honoured ingredients – excellent films and dialogues with directors –, yet with a number of novelties…

For starters, we are moving our centre of operations to the heart of the city. Hence, the Renoir Floridablanca cinema, the CCCB and La Pedrera de CatalunyaCaixa are the chosen venues for DocsBarcelona 2012.

Our new features are also coming in the form of content. For example…

- We’ve combined the Panorama, D’America and Historia sections to create the Official Section

- We celebrate our 15th anniversary with The Best of the Fests, a master class by the festivals of San Sebastian, IDFA (Amsterdam), É Tudo Verdade (Sao Paulo) and Gucci-Tribeca (New York), all of which will be attending DocsBarcelona.

- We’re launching the DocSessions section, to enable viewers to enjoy documentaries from the comfort of their homes via internet, thanks to Filmin, where will also be bringing back some of the best documentaries from previous editions …

And a whole host of other things that we’ll be discovering along the way!

Mark your calendar! DocsBarcelona 2012 is just around the corner!
