Open City Docs comes to London with killer programme

OpenCityDocs documentary festivalLast week Open City Docs  announced their programme for this year’s festival, taking place over six days from 21-26 June at venues across London. They will screen over 60 documentaries and host an impressive line-up of special events, industry sessions, masterclasses, networking events and – not to forget – kick ass parties.

Opening the festival will be Tadhg O’Sullivan’s The Great Wall, a poetic and timely exploration of one of the great themes of our times: mass migration and the refugee crisis.

Ognjen Glavonic returns to the festival with Depth Two, a documentary thriller which unearths the story of a war crime in Serbia under Slobodan Milošević’s dictatorship, closing Open City 2016.

Highlights this year include Bill and Turner Ross’ Americana trilogy, a programme focusing on the work of French filmmaker, photographer, sound artist and ethnomusicologist Vincent Moon as well as masterclasses with Lucien Castaing-Taylor, Helena Třeštíková and Marc Isaacs. Find out more here.

Also returning are the Open City Awards which include Grand Jury Award, International Emerging Filmmaker Award and, in collaboration with Docheads, Best UK Short.
