Documentary section

Selected works under this section reconsider the traditional forms of documentary filmmaking and, meanwhile, urge the audience to reflect on its perceptions and the relevance of this cinema of reality. The idea here is to promote new perspectives on the documentary film and allow more room for the diversity of documentary forms in the official selection.

Reflecting the vibrant energy of the continent’s creative documentary, this section is a meeting platform for filmmakers and producers, programmers and film critics and fans as well through its FESPACO DOC space.
