The ZagrebDox International Documentary Film Festival has already unveiled the full line-up for its 16th edition. Helmed by its founder, Nenad Puhovski, the most important documentary event in Croatia and one of the leading ones in the Balkans will this year host 112 documentaries across its various sections. A total of 34 films will be participating in the two official competitions – International and Regional – for the festival’s Big Stamp Award, while up-and-coming directors under 35 years of age will also be eligible for the Little Stamp Award. ZagrebDox, which this year runs from 15-22 March, has also switched its main venue, so all of the screenings and events will now be hosted at the CineStar Zagreb – Branimir Mingle Mall.

As always, ZagrebDox offers more sections than just the competitive ones, and this year, the sidebars include Biography Dox, Controversial Dox, Happy Dox, Masters of Dox, Musical Globe, State of Affairs, ADU DOX (films from the Zagreb Academy of Dramatic Arts), Teen Dox, and Factumentaries. Also, two new programmes are being introduced: Eco Dox, which deals with the environmental crisis, and Filmmakers on Filmmakers, which features portraits of world-renowned figures in cinema, made by acclaimed directors.

As for the retrospectives, three programmes are being organised: one is dedicated to British director Lucy Walker, who will also hold a master class; there will also be a special selection curated by Diana Nenadić on Female Directors in Croatian Documentary Production (including films from the past five years by Milica Borojević, Snježana Tribuson, Katarina Zrinka Matijević, Tatjana Božić and Dana Budisavljević, with the latter giving a lecture as well); and the Author’s Night will focus on acclaimed Croatian helmer Goran Dević.
