DOCUMENTAMADRID is a festival organised by the Madrid City Council and dedicated to multiple expressions of documentary film and the search for itineraries of the reality that are open to the genre’s new languages and expressions.

DOCUMENTAMADRID is an annual meeting point for creators, professionals and audiences to whom their work is presented. The 14th edition of the Madrid International Documentary Film Festival will be held between May 4th and 14th, 2017.

In its 14th edition, DOCUMENTAMADRID will have 6 competitive sections, 4 of which are NEW in this edition:

  • International Feature Film and Short Film Competition.
  • National Feature Film and Short Film Competition.
  • Fugas Feature Film and Short Film Competition, open to the most innovative and creative filmmaking.

With a total of €45,000 in prizes and two new audience awards to support exhibition and distribution, DOCUMENTAMADRID aims to give as much support as possible to creators with a special focus on Spanish documentary filmmakers. DOCUMENTAMADRID also wants to become a unique space for the dialogue between the audience and the creators of the best contemporary non-fiction films.

For this new edition DOCUMENTAMADRID also wishes to open its doors to all those authors and film works that are redefining the aesthetic boundaries of cinema as well as to reach out to new audiences while maintaining its demanding and critical audience.
