On June 28th, 2017, USAID Mission Director James Hope witnessed the signing of an MOU between EMPOWER Private Sector and DokuFest International Documentary and Short Film Festival. Through the MOU both parties will work together to promote Kosovo’s tourism to international media and DokuFest participants during the festival this summer.
Held annually in Prizren, DokuFest is the largest film festival in Kosovo. Each year it fills improvised screening venues around the historic city center with a selection of more than 200 hand-picked films from around the world. The festival is known for its lively atmosphere and the enthusiasm of the city and its people. Furthermore, the festival has become an important event that brings together thousands of international visitors every year. This year the festival will run from the 4th to the 12th of August.
