The Melbourne Documentary Film Festival has been named the best documentary film festival in the world by Film Daily.
The Melbourne Documentary Film Festival might still be new, but it’s quickly rising to become one of the most well-respected and thought-provoking festivals in the world.
Curating features from the world’s biggest and most prestigious global showcases, the Melbourne Doc Fest provides a leading platform for the most inventive creative nonfiction films of today. In fact, Film Daily made it their top pick due to the festival’s consistently extensive program.
For 2018, this includes unique pop culture cuts such as: “Takao Goutsu’s Living the Game,” following various eSports personalities as they battle it out on Ultra Street Fighter IV over the course of a year; timely geopolitics pieces like Thor Neureiter’s “Disaster Capitalism,” unveiling the seedy underbelly of the global aid and investment industry; and dazzling portraits of mesmerizing cultural troubadours like Sophie Fiennes’s “Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami,” David Austin’s George Michael “Freedom,” and Kieron Walsh’s “Anjelica Huston on James Joyce: A Shout in the Street.”
The festival attracts top tier talent while maintaining its unique independent spirit, making it a must-attend event for cinephiles everywhere.
