The call for this year’s Gdansk DocFilm Festival’s edition is closed

26-th February 2018

We’ve closed the call for entries for this year’s, 16th Gdańsk DocFilm Festival. During the event in June the chosen films will, for the first time, compete in two categories: the international documentary competition as well as the newly introduced Polish short fiction films competition. We’ve received nearly 300 documentaries from all over the world. Apart from that, we’ve been sent over 50 domestic shorts. We’ll find out which documentaries will compete for the Gate of Freedom and which short fiction films for the Gdańsk Cranes in mid-April. The competition films will be chosen by a three-person selection committee.
