PODGORICA: The 9th UnderhillFest, international festival of feature documentaries, running through 12 June 2018 in Podgorica, puts the spotlight on women in the industry programme.
In 2017 the festival started a programme called RAD, a workshop for women authors of documentary films from the region, which this year has grown into CIRCLE, a programme which gathers women authors and producers of documentaries from Southeast Europe countries, who will work with renowned mentors to develop projects which have international potential. CIRCLE will have three modules. The first one takes place at the UnderhillFest, the second one in Novi Sad and the third one at the festival in Leipzig. The programme is developed and managed by Biljana Tutorov and Vuk Perović and produced by Wake Up Films Novi Sad and UnderhillFest Podgorica.
Within the 9th UnderhillFest, a three-day programme IN FOCUS will be held for the third time this year in cooperation with Women’s Rights Center in Podgorica. Three films dealing with feminism, human rights and women’s creations will be screened within the programme. After each screening, there will be a discussion about films and ways in which the issues in films manifest in our society.
The final programme is DOCU-SCHOOL, a school of documentary film for high-school seniors. Students will be introduced to the world of documentaries by learning the basics of documentaries and shooting short documentary films.
