About DokuBaku International Documentary Film Festival.

DokuBaku is the first independent documentary film festival in Azerbaijan. Since the establishment of the festival 2017 our aim has been to present a showcase of handpicked - specially elected documentary films from all over the world in the international program as well as local competition which aims to support the local filmmakers and non-fiction production.

This years 3rd edition will be held from the 2nd to 6th of October and theme of the festival is "Truthfulness". The prerequisite of our choice was the notion of the ever more and more polarized world, fragmented societies with difficulties to find places of intersections. One of the definitions of truthfulness says: the quality of being honest and not containing or telling any lies.
