About The Festival DOCK

The interest in historical cinema over the past decade is a trend in contemporary documentaries. Bearing this concept in mind not only across screens globally, but also here in Bulgaria, we are launching the largest forum for International Historic Documentary Cinema – DOCK. It will take place for the first time in Burgas over 4 days – between the 19th and the 22nd of September 2018.

The inaugural edition of the festival will offer:

  • An official competition programme, in which 9 films will take part;
  • • A special programme, dedicated to the 100-year anniversary of the end of WWI
  • • A free programme, presenting the best of the global documentary cinema

The evaluation of the films will be made by a highly-qualified international jury, which will present the awards.

The festival will be attended by actors, directors and screenplay writers from around the globe, and the audience will have free access to all the screenings.

DOCK’s mission is to become one of the most notable events on the Bulgarian cultural scene, which will contribute to exploring world history in an attractive and creative way.
