DokuBaku 2020 held with support of the Czech Republic

Dedicated to „Changes“, this year's 4th edition of DokuBaku – the first independent International Documentary Film Festival in Azerbaijan – was held from 30 November until 6 December, with support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.

DokuBaku 2020 has pioneered its presence online as the first festival in Azerbaijan, partnering up with the prominent Czech-based VOD platform DAfilms

Since the establishment of DokuBaku in 2017, the aim of its organizers, including the Prague-based DokuBaku founder and programmer Veronika Janatková, has been to present a showcase of domestic and international films to the Azerbaijani public. As in previous years, they introduced a rich programme for the 2020 edition, presenting films in competition and industry sessions including extended masterclasses. Films with English and Azerbaijani subtitles were accessible free of charge at the Azerbaijani territory, with approximately 1200 online viewers. „Kiruna“ by Greta Stocklassa represented Czech film.
