Belgrade Documentary and Short Film Festival

International Documentary and short film festival in Belgrade.

About

Belgrade Documentary and Short Film Festival originates from The Festival of Yugoslav Film, founded in 1953 in Pula, Croatia (back then Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, SFRY). The festival screened both fiction films and documentaries.Year by year, documentaries and short films were more and more numerous (number in the year 1959 increasing to 92 films). However, compared to the feature films, which were put in the centre of the festival’s programme, documentaries were still an off programme. In the year 1959, the board made the decision to create another festival devoted exclusively to documentary and short films. The Yugoslav Documentary and Short Film Festival was started in Belgrade, Serbia.
