The first International Dialektus Festival is over!
The most creative and sensitive documentary films of Europe were competing for 4 days to win the Golden Deer Prize
In 2007, there were more than 300 documentaries submitted from 28 European countries, therefore the jury had a difficult task. Almost all documentaries were really interesting and remarkable. But we had to make a hard decision of the films that can take part in the festival program, which has limited time for film screenings.
During the selection we faced a high number of good quality ethnographic documentaries, so we created a separate competition for these works.
In addition to the splendid selection of documentaries the program offers also concerts, exhibitions and discussions with filmmakers.
The festival was also an excellent occasion for film professionals to exchange ideas and international experiences.
