A film festival is not just screenings, it has to go much further. The audience must be the main protagonist and see their expectations fulfilled with our proposals, which must be renewed and surprise us every year.
Non-fiction is the best tool for knowing, observing, reflecting on and transforming the reality that surrounds us, both the one that seems distant and alien and the one that is close and our own. That is part of what we want to bring to our city.
We are not just a film festival. We are stories, views, perspectives, experiences and, above all, exchange of cultures. Each documentary is emotion, discovery, surprise, beauty, poetics and, why not, humor. That is what we try to convey to the viewer when the lights go out in each of our rooms.
We conceive documentary film festivals as spaces for intellectual upheaval, as scenarios to think about our world and enjoy discovering it. This is who we are, but only in part. The rest does not fit on one page. We challenge you to discover it at DocsValència Non-Fiction Space.
