26th Ji.hlava announces first titles


Only six weeks are left until the start of the 26th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival that will take place on October 25 to 30. The festival will bring new original documentaries, thematic retrospectives, the best in experimental filmmaking and a number of non-competitive programme sections. Over 40,000 viewers and 1,300 film professionals are expected to attend the 26th edition of this leading European documentary festival and the largest event of its kind in Central and Eastern Europe.   

The programme of the 26th Ji.hlava will offer so far the largest retrospective of the cinema of the Philippines shown outside Asia, a programme reflecting on the Russian aggression in Ukraine, “war” as a film theme, as well as new works by Armenian filmmaking legend Artavazd Peleshyan and Ukrainian director Sergei Loznitsa.

It wouldn’t be accurate to say that Ji.hlava’s film programme was curtailed during the pandemic, but this year's edition is absolutely exceptional – both in terms of the international sections and in the highly popular Czech Joy competition showcasing Czech documentary films,” says festival director Marek Hovorka.“

Please find more details as well as the announced film titles in the enclosed press release.
