CAMERIMAGE - FEATURE DOCUMENTARY FILMS COMPETITION

Festivals 2009-11-10

For this year's Documentary Films Competition 'Image of the World - World in Images', under the patronage of Discovery Networks Central Europe organized as a part of the Documentary Films Section of the Plus Camerimage Festival, we received over 530 entries from 79 countries from six continents. That is 150 more than last year!

This year, for the first time, entries to the Documentary Films Competition, were accepted for two separate time categories: short and feature. During the festival an international jury, separate for each category, will decide on the winners of Grand Prix - the Golden Frog. What is more, independently from the juries' choice, the patron of the Documentary Films Section will for the first time in history grant the statuettes of Discovery Networks Central Europe for the first time in history. Below, you will find the list of this years' feature documentaries jurors:
